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.

Puppy Linux has had a default su-user named "spot" with no password set . login spot [Enter] [Enter] and you're not root anymore . In newer Puppies there has been added a user named "fido" . Don't know if "spot" still exist . Be aware that as non-root the key-combo CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE does not work in Xorg anymore to change to terminal .
I have used another KISS approach.
Running Puppy Slacko 5.3.3 with save-H.3fx file.
Copy the "save-?.3fs" file to several more named files, such as "save-JOHN.3fs", "save-MARY.3fs", "save-JERRY.3fs".
When puppy loads, it will present you with the option of selecting ONE of these files.
Each "save-?.3fs" can contain its own setup / configs / PETs , etc.
Each user just selects his own "save-?.3fx" file.
I realize this is not a "secure" approach,
but since I have the capability of probing any "save-?.3fx" file and extracting any info and any file,
there is no absolute security available anyway.
My latest install, which was today, relies on the user group to select the proper "save-?.3fs" file at bootup.
