    Many people still believe that learning Linux is difficult, or that only experts can understand how a Linux system works. Though there is a lot of free documentation available, the documentation is widely scattered on the Web, and often confusing, since it is usually oriented toward experienced UNIX or Linux users. Today, thanks to the advancements in development, Linux has grown in popularity both at home and at work. The goal of this guide is to show people of all ages that Linux can be simple and fun, and used for all kinds of purposes.

And that explains the premise of this book -- a hands-on guide to get things done on a Linux system.

    The Linux+FreeBSD mini-HOWTO

    This document describes how to use Linux and FreeBSD on the same system. It introduces FreeBSD and discusses how the two operating systems can cooperate, e.g. by sharing swap space. You should probably have some experience with Linux or FreeBSD and hard drive partitioning (fdisk) before you read this document. The tips herein are tested using FreeBSD 2.2.2, but they should be valid for newer versions as well. Do not hesitate to mail me if you have comments, questions or suggestions about this document. I would also like to hear from people who have experience using Linux together with NetBSD or OpenBSD.

    Arch Linux for DIY Users
    There's no dearth of Linux distributions for desktop users or even for running high availability servers. But if you are a do-it-yourself computer user, your choice of Linux distros is fairly limited. You can build Linux from scratch with Linux from Scratch or compile your own set of packages with Gentoo. But if you want a distro that teaches you the basics of Linux as you set it up; is well documented, lightweight, and zippy; and has a dependency-resolving packaging system, you need Arch Linux.

    This is awesome stuff you've got here, but I think the problem is that the people who are supposed to be reading this will shudder away from the sheer volume of literature that is available.
