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.

successfully working on a 2.4.2x i switched to 2.6
in need of the acpi features to put the libretto to
memsuspend. however, i can't get unbroken play
-back (file or stream) anymore.
disabling 2.6 preempt on makes it bit better, but don't
reach the behavior of a preempt & lowlat'd 2.4.2x.
sound scratches are mainly when switching through
workspaces (lot of drawing/cpu). 2.4 is all right.

the complete system hardware is quite exotic; the lspci output
is scary, so are the dmesg-error messages from acpi (but, iirc,
harmless and with 2.4 also). ide-dma and changing pci latency
timers don't work. [plug'n'pray/acpi]toshiba controller & yenta

isn't preempt involved in trying to get the system more responsible
and to work with audio/video/media more comfortable?
if i'd like to switch back: is there a backport from the current (2.6)
acpi subsystem for 2.4-kernel's avail?
2.6 kernel is not so stable, so you may want to upgrade to the latest version to follow the development pace, if the problem still exists in the latest version, you may issue a bug report to the kernel mailing list.
