    Just thought I'd put up a list of links that you might like. I invite all of you to help me with this. Please try to keep redundancy down to a minimum (we all know the docs are spread all over the world :D and such), also please try to avoid extremely newbie oriented/single topic links (like, for example a link to kde) so that we can really build up a good compendium of resources.
    Thanx a heap.

    Failure is not an option -- it comes bundled with Windows.

    Those links are my top ones. I would only add www.linuxjunior.org to it. A smaller, cozyier LNO. It features PETS, (Plain English Tutorials).


    OOPS!

    Hi,

    For users of Mandrake primarily, also to RH and SuSe. An excellent source for specifically compiled rpms. Plus you can ask for new rpms to be made!

    Good stuff here guys. Very helpful to me because I'm interested in learning and using Linux. I will do some reading and, hopefully soon, be using Linux on my build.
