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 have recently gone through a RASH of installations of different versions of Linux. I was using an old decrepit hd so I wasn't worried about anything, and I was deliberately being rough on the installs in an effort to learn about using *nix operating systems. Indeed, I learned a lot, which is how I ultimately ended up with Arch as my primary OS.
At some point along the way, I managed to put something into my BIOS that changed the delay at startup from the original 10 seconds to a mind blowing (and highly irritating) 30 seconds. I don't remember what I did or when or with which install, but now I want to change it back to the way it was.
Can anyone help me? I have entered the BIOS on setup so many times I just about have the screens memorized, but I don't see a way to change it from BIOS itself. Hopefully there is a way to access it and fix it. This is driving me nuts!
