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've been battling this problem off and on for a few weeks now. On our win'2003 server, I need to press the left CTRL key to act as my CAPS lock key and the CAPS lock key is my left-CTRL key...so they've been reversed.
This happens with any keyboard I've tried. Everything is fine when the server is powered on, but once windows 2003 loads up, the keys are reversed. To make things more difficult, the odd time, other keys don't work, such as number 2 (not the numeric keypad).
I've searched for spyware and viruses but nothing. I wanted to use sfc /scannow but it keeps prompting me for the Win'2003 Enterprise Server cd when this is Standard edition (it even says so in SYSTEM).
The keyboard driver is the standard one installed by Win'2003 as far as I know, though I've tried some others.
This problem started after installing a wireless keyboard and mouse combo and running the setup.exe that came with it. After uninstalling this and going back to the previous keyboard, this problem started.
The same server runs Cygwin, not that it's of much significance to this problem.
