Hello all -

I found The Official DSL Book in the Library - I have been using Ubuntu Studio, and trying to learn more about Linux.

I thought Damn Small Linux was a toy, but when I browsed the book I found a number of tasks that I thought would help me get more comfortable in Linux, so I brought it home.

Now I'm reading the book, and booted DSL on  my old Pentium-M Compaq notebook (lubuntu 12.10 barfed - "non pae") WOW was it FAST! And apparently, under the hood - opps, there is no hood - is a full blown kernal.

I look forward to exploring this forum, and ask you to bear with patience my newb question.

Best Regards,

Santa Cruz, CA

Thanks for the link, fatmac.

I saved the link to the free book, and even emailed it to meself so I can pick up the read on the other machine.

Everything I can learn about Linux will get me one step closer to being free from the Mega System's spell...

Thank you, Jesus!
