    Comments about oreilly Learning Linux System Administration:

    Fantastic tutorial for some things I never new as a BEGINNER to linux!
    I didn't know everything is considered a file, rad!
    I'd never seen the hexdump program, weird!
    This a GREAT tutorial for those looking for more insight into working with the terminal and getting into learning how to operate linux i would recommend you watch it, the author of the video is actually very interesting in his presentation as it's very easy to be a stick in the mud with teaching tech. Sit down, smoke a joint, learn some Linux.
