1. Linux books in Trinidad. Offhand, I'd say Creative Computers, POS may have a book or two. Apart from that, you're stuck with Amazon.com or Barnes and Noble. If
you need a list of titles, just indicate, and we will provide some books you might want to get.
As for getting a PC with Linux on it, your best bet is to get a PC sold without an OS (if you don't want to dualboot - any PC store should do it) and bringing the machine to a
TTLUG meeting and letting us install it for you. Just tell us beforehand. In case you need distros, just shout on the mailing list, and we can provide a selection of the
Tech support- there are two or three guys on the list who have companies that will provide Linux support, as well as help setting up Samba networking services.
And of course, the mailing list will provide a good source of free support, once you do not abuse our good natures <grin>
As always, your mail list archives can be found at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TTLUG
