Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am a relative newcomer to linux and have progressed from Suse and Ubuntu to Arch. I am gradually learning more about Linux and recently installed Arch x86_64 on my HP Pavilion laptop with a 64 bit processor. Arch has installed well on the laptop as far as I can tell and I am not dual booting Arch and Ubuntu.
However I would like to learn to use LVM on Arch. When going though their wiki I find that the instructions for using LVM pertains to their earlier release. Would the same instructions apply to the current release? (Gimmick). Also, do I have to use the Arch installation CD to create Logical Volumes or can I use an LVM set up through Ubuntu? I am a bit confused by this, whether a Logical Volume created by one distribution would be read as such when installing another distribution without causing problems?
My other question is with regard to implementing suspend and hibernate on my laptop. I am running KDE on my laptop and within KDE one can enable these functions within the control center. However, the Arch wiki seems to suggest that there is a seperate procedure for setting up suspend and hibernate functions on the laptop, involving downloading seperate suspend2 and hibernate scripts and then altering files within the installation. What is the correct way to go about this?
I am confused because I am not sure whether the more recent kernels (2.6.18...) automatically implement suspend and hibernate that can be set up from within KDE or whether this is something seperate to be set up in accordance with the arch wiki, in keeping with the 'do-it-yourself' philosophy of Arch?
Thanks to anyone who can help with this.
