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 a new Insporin 6000 with Windows XP and Fedora Core 3. Every other time I boot into FC, doesn't matter what I do before, it freezes just before showing the login screen! Here's how.
I start the notebook and boot into FC3, it goes through all the intial steps and just before it shows the login username screen, it freezes with the hour-glass cursor right in the middle of the screen. I have to hold down the power button to turn the notebook off.
After I turn power of and restart, everything comes up fine. Again, freezes on restart, I turn off power, and it comes up fine. I am intrigued by this one-time-freeze-one-time-OK pattern!
It doesn't matter what I do, or how many times I boot into Windows, etc., Only thing that counts is booting into FC3, works one time and freezes one time.
I am temped to think that whenever I shutdown/restart properly, it freezes restart. I want to logout session and turn power off physically instead of shutdown, to test my theory. Will that break/corrupt my FC3 installation?
Any clues to troubleshoot this problem are appreciated.
