Linux 1-2-3 Fundamentals CD

Linux 1-2-3 Fundamentals is the first disk of computer-based training in a series of open-source educational products. The interactive CBT is a tutorial designed to introduce one to the Linux OS. Topics range from file systems, shells and file security to command-line mail, GUI and KDE. The learning environment of Linux 1-2-3 Fundamentals does not assume the student is a Linux (or UNIX) expert. The CD comes with the Red Hat, Mandrake and SuSE distributions, provided by a partnership with LinuxCentral, an e-commerce web site.
