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.

Hi Folks: I'm new to Linux and this is my first post for some help with several problems with Freespire. I don't actually think they are limited to Freespire.
1. During boot and before Freespire starts to load there is a screen with options - boot Freespire, Diagnostics, etc. If you do nothing Freespire starts to load after about 5 seconds. Can one edit a file to remove the delay or get rid of the screen? I know how to do this sort of thing in Windows but I'm lost in Linux.
2. On my XP box I have set the mouse up so that a press on the wheel results in "Back." It is very useful for I don't have to move the cursor up to the top left when browsing, etc. This is set up in the Logitech software. Can one do something similar in Linux? I've looked around but it seems to be very complex and I haven't actually seen anything about redesignating the wheel press, just left and right buttons.
3. Is there a way to get the sleep button on the keyboard to work in Linux? On XP everything shuts down except power to memory so I get fast restarts.
I think three questions is enough to start with!
