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.

SUSE-Linux-9.2-mini-installation.iso (size: exactly 67336192 bytes),
burn it on a CD and boot from it to start the installation of the SUSE
Linux 9.2 FTP version. The advantage over option 1) is clear: You only
download the packages that you need: From the total of 3GB of the
DVD image you might only need 1GB for your desired selection of
packages to install.
Also, consult the README file in the 9.2/boot directory (same level as this
