I keep a local copy of RUTE on most of my machines and set up a browser
bookmark bar button (bbbb?) to pop it up quickly. Very nicely written, though
like anything else it's securely tied to the author and his prejudices. Not
that his are bad, but it's worth realising that his personal views come

I'd also suggest considering dead tree publications as well. Much as I am an
online and free-info junkie, I have to confess that some of my most profound
'Ah-ha!' moments have come from reading books. The O'Reilly LPI book and the
Linux Command reference are superb. So are several of the (dreadfully

Right now I'm reading File System Forensics by Brian Carrier and while some of
it is poorly edited and much is very basic, I'm finding it a suitably
detailed explanation of exactly how hard discs and file systems interact.

for teaching Linux. Last I looked it was a couple of years old and
incomplete, but showed promise. Use the sourceforge search with perhaps LPI
as the search string.
