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, im having some problems with using my canon canoscan
n670u on slack 9.1 kernel 2.4.22. im using xsane and the error i get is:
Error during read: Error during device I/O
importantly, xsane *finds* the device but i get that error when
previewing/scanning. the same error i get with scanimage.
also importantly, this scanner did work a few days ago! i did the same thing
with xsane and it was fine!
to me it seems as if everything is ok and yet i get I/O errors (tried as root btw)
scanimage -L finds the scanner sane-find-scanner finds it
and the scanner starts making noises for about a second, then waiting for
a few seconds, and then i get an error. please help. thanks.
