Resources: Linux

Linux is one of several freely available operating systems. Jim also has some more verbose comments about Linux.

Some of the handier HOWTOs (not exhaustive)
Linux High Availability HOWTO (Linux HA) Clustering for failover and robustness
Configuration HOWTO - lots of common options
Keyboard and Console HOWTO
The Linux Sound HOWTO: Supported Hardware
BootDisk HOWTO because having boot floppies is good
DOS/Windows to Linux HOWTO - You're not inexperienced, you just need a translator
Mini-HOWTOs for mixing Linux with
Win95 or another using Loadlin
FreeBSD
WinNT
DOS & Win95 & OS2 or other multiple combinations

Of course it's usually worthwhile to check the HOWTO Index: (Embry-Riddle Aeronautical U.) (Sunsite, now metalab)

Embry-Riddle also hosts a public FTP server: linuxwww.db.erau.edu:/pub/linux
