Learn the intricacies of Linux in a casual, laid-back style that is full of information. The Linux community uses lots of cool names and acronyms for different components and features like perl, squid, PAM, GRUB and sudo. You'll learn not only what they mean, but how to use them.

From installation and configuration to security, troubleshooting and recovery, you'll get a thorough look at how it all works. This course also delves into the Linux Kernel, the core of Linux and Linux development, showing you how to upgrade and recompile it. You'll spend time learning shell and perl scripting as well as X windows and the Linux rescue environment.
