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.

Could someone please give me advice as to a motherboard that will support a Pentium 3 800mhz 256/133 processor. I know that a VC820 supports this cpu, but it is rare and expensive. I just want to know if there are any reliable and affordable alternatives.
it's an old CPU, check ebay or such, I have a P3 @ 733 Mhz on some nameless baby atx board. it supports both slot 1 and socket 3XX?
on-board usb, audio and video and lan, though I do not use much else but the on-board video and a pci 3com nic
So a motherboard that supports a p3 733 motherboard would support a 800 mhz?
I know its old compared to a Xeon, but at my home its cutting edge technology. I have been using an old Cyrix cpu on my flagship for years while paying off debts.
I appreaciate your help, but am far from getting a result. So far I have worked out that I need to plug the Pent 3 into slot 1.
What I am confused about is wether Pent 2, 3, 4 all have the same number of pins. I know that celeron is a socket. Is there a way I can tell from a motherboards chipset or anything else what cpu it supports. The cpu's going on ebay do not mention the number of pins they have and motherboards selling on ebay do not mention the number of pins they accept. Hell.
I tried looking for Intel 440 bx/zx on ebay and only found one selling in Germany I think. Postage was a bummer.
I bought an Msi Slot 1 motherboard. Could anyone tell me in advance, whether I will have to resell the board? I bought it out of frustration, as I could not find a way to check what cpu's motherboards support.
It's the 133Mhz front-side bus you have to worry about. Early Slot 1 P3 mobos used a 100Mhz FSB just like the P2 350-450 did. I think the fastest P3 with a 100Mhz FSB is 600Mhz. You can also tell by the L2 cache, 100Mhz P3's had twice as much of it, 512 instead of 256, but it was clocked at half the speed of the 133Mhz versions.
