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.

OK, I need serious help. A few days ago, my KDE desktop was taking a very long time t load, and once it did, no commands worked.
Well, I got a new hard drive a few days ago, so I decided now may be a good time to reinstall Linux on the new drive anyway. The problem is that once it reboots, various services take a very long time to start, if they do at all, and I still get the same issues with KDE and X as I did.
Does anyone know what could be the cause?
BTW- I also run BeOS and Windows 98, and they are acting funny and kind of slow also.
is your CPU fan still functional? An overheated cpu will result in slow performance. Instead of putting everything into a new box, why not pull everything out of the current box except your hdd and video, and then go from there. Any power failures lately that may have hurt your system? Do you overclock your system? How much memory do you have, if you can try with one piece in at a time and see fi you can figure out if it is your memory. I definatly suspect the CPU overheating.
