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 just had a strange problem, I am booting into runlevel3 from there I run X (with sdx11 - very handy utility BTW), and when I switched back to virtual console whatever I type is not printing on the screen, but if I hit return the command executes, blindly I've checked if echo was turned off it wasn't I turned it off and on, nothing happened, but after a reboot everything went to normal. Weirdness is surely a part of linux.
I have a UNIX keyboard with xmodmap set such way that I have no CAPS key and I don't use a Scroll Lock at all, it was just one timer, and after that reboot nothing strange happens, so I guess I should blame penguins for playing mind tricks with me, but I like penguins
It just freaked me out again, but this time penguin forgot English. What happened I was going to play some RTCW and as usual it won't load (another obsticle RTCW won't load and there is no mouse/keyboard reaction, but ctrl-alt-F1-6 works perfectly),so I had to drop to console to kill it, when I saw my console it was all gibberish with symbols not letters at all. My box is running non-stop sinse my previous post on this thread I don't mind gibberish I can use another vc that speaks English, so anyways I felt like posting it just for fun of it.
