The Linux User Group HOWTO is meant to serve as a guide to founding, maintaining, and growing a Linux User Group.
Linux is a freely-distributable implementation of Unix for personal computers, servers and workstations. It was developed on the i386 and now supports i486, Pentium, Pentium Pro, and Pentium II processors, as well as x86-clones from AMD, Cyrix, and others. It also supports many SPARC, DEC Alpha, PowerPC/PowerMac, Motorola 68x0 Mac/Amiga machines.
If you want to learn more about Linux, the Linux Documentation Project is a good place to start.
