Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I don't even know what the terminology is.
But, a friend has a dedicated Red Hat server. And I have a shell (I'm on it now...browsing via 'links' ^_^.
I figured you could change things in the ./configure scripts for programs, but never the extent I have.
I'm obviously unable to write to /etc /lib etc. .
But, I have a psuedo Linux system inside my home directory.
~/local/ and I have all of them, doc, usr, etc, lib, another home (won't be used, I know :P), etc.
I never knew that that's how installations have to be accomplished for user specific things.
Completely and totally awesome. Using master resources, but install and configured for yours truely.
I've learned so much being console/terminal only, it's so fun.
the coolest thing is installing linux :P and of course deleting windows
Unfortunately there is no driver for my old printer for linux. So I come with the decision to setup "windows print server". Hope it won't comes with blue screen;P. I got the oldest PC 486 DX, 8MB ram, 540 MB HDD =]. The coolest hardware in it is the Lan card (3Com of course;P) Hope ill set it up fast. Anybody made something like this? If so.. post some tips ;P
Distribution: Ubuntu 11.4,DD-WRT micro plus ssh,lfs-6.6,Fedora 15,Fedora 16
as a coaster? why not stick it in a toaster and "really" burn a cd ...
another thing, use a WYSE terminal with my mac powerbook speaking of which can you get aalib to run on a serial tty, or would the baud rate be to slow for that?
