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'm looking for some suggestions on free data mining alternatives to services like domaintools.com. For example, http://domaintools.com/sld.tld (where sld.tld is a typical domain name, probably currently registered, through some registrar. I'm particularly interested in retrieving historic registrar, registrant, DNS, and other records, much like the example URL above would produce at domaintools.
My contract w/ARIN, for example, provides me with on the fly historical records there, and if you look at the link I provided (substituting an actual domain name that is registered), it will return the current records from the port 43 WHOIS server at the current registrar or registry, and optionally, with a subscription, the previous records including the historic registrants, historic registrars, etc.
Check it out and you'll see for yourself

The typical tech support issues that an ISP would be interested in resolving problems for certainly wouldn't entail any historic research.
Software that produces results along the lines of the link above would also be appreciated. I've hobbled together some tools with functionality that produces much of the output that site produces already, but the historical records are still eluding me.
The point is that I don't want to rely upon someone elses site or external resources, bur rather, my own.
Any thoughts, suggestions?
