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 recently installed SUSE 9.1 Personal (about 5 days ago). Last night, I left my regular user logged in. This morning, I found the system locked up (looked like a plain black text-mode screen, no text, just a small cursor). After rebooting, I found I could no longer log in as this user using the regular login screen that appears once the system boots. I'd log in, wait a second or so, then get the login screen again. I can log in as root, or as other users. When I check one of the logs (/var/log/messages) I see messages like this:

Could someone please show me what I might need to do to fix this?
