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.

Got my mouse scroll wheel working. Just uncomment the following line in /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

As for the network card, it's still coming up dead on some bootups, but I discovered that it probably is a firmware issue. In my BIOS POST logs, there are regular occurrences of an NIC Failure. Will have to hunt around for firmware. It was suggested to me that power management might have something to do with it, but I didn't notice any...
Yes, Debian's back on my laptop. But "lenny" this time. I've decided to have two contrasting stable distros: Slack 12.2 and "lenny", and I've got room for two more, which will be more cutting-edge, unstable, "Oh ****, what's happened now!?", types. I was thinking of, maybe, Arch and Fedora? Not sure yet.
I have just been trying my Geniatech dvb usb stick with "me-tv". The picture is very jerky, annoyingly jerky. Strange thing though; If I record a few minutes, just to test it, the playback is smooth, but the brightness is up.
