Subject: [ILUG] Linux Newbies
: To my mind, it is perhaps unfortunate that the
: first experience many people have with linux is from
: a magazine cover-mounted CD - they tend to come with
: very little easily accessible documentation, and often
: lack many applications that people have come to expect
: on linux, since they're generally crammed onto one CD.
: I remember thoroughly mangling my old Amiga HD once or
: twice experimenting with NetBSD/m68k in the distant past...
: If you're a "serious" linux newbie, I would always
: recommend splashing out on a proper boxed set
: with printed manuals - I find Mandrake has the
: most newbie-friendly documentation (especially if you're
: french :-), closely followed by RedHat.
: For on-line doumentation, the "learn" section of
: http://www.linux.com/ is very good, as is linux-mandrake's own site
: on http://www.linux-mandrake.com/
