Debian and Linux related training video
The following site as Debian and Linux training video materials on sale
at reasonable prices.
Though their Debian GNU/Linux video training CDs are for version 3.1. I
still found it very helpful. For newbies it helps to give a full
understanding of how Debian works and how to administer it. It even
covers IP Tables. It includes real examples that you can try. They ship
There is also a DVD for samba training.
You will need flash in order to view the videos. Please note that on
Linux systems (at least in my case Debian 4 and 5) it only seems to work
with Adobe Flash Player plugin. I could not get it to work with the
"free" Flash Player plugins.
You can get additional multimedia packages for Debian by adding the
following line to you apt-get sources.list
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org lenny main (for lenny/stable)
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org squeeze main (for squeeze/testing)
Please read the FAQ on the site before using the repository.
Please note that I am not affiliated with PCTech101 in anyway.
I found the material offered to be very helpful when I started using
Debian and even now. I do know how frustrating it can be when trying to
understand Debian and Linux as a newbie and reading HOWTOs can be very
discouraging as they are more for reference than for learning. Try
reading the HOWTOs and online instructions for SAMBA or SWAT.
