The best visual guide found
on 27 August 2008
Highly visual, masses of screenshots, and how to do's.
Each page is a "complete" how to topic, such as Partitioning the Disk, Making space to install Linux, and the different ways to install (reduce the windows partition or add a second Hard drive to the system).
Standard issue like changing Screen resolution - but every page is covered in visual step by step diagrams.
Too many Linux books are "wordy", and don't focus on the immediate hit and runs that you need to get started fast.
At the end are shell scripting and an index of commands.
Very concise, tight, colourful, easy.
Logical and highly structured, in a visual manner.
Easy to follow, easy to learn from.
