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'm running suse 9.1 and lately it's been extremely laggy. today it froze up and crashed and whenever i try to use the keyboard to logout out it just closes the bar and desktop icons and they pop right back up (like it was just being refreshed) and my mouse cursor moves but the white arrow turns into a little grey head (i'm guessing it's a skull) or something. is this a virus or something built in to suse to tell em something has screwed up? i'm about to reformat it anyways but i was just curious if anybody knew what was causing this?
Distribution: SUSE 9.1 Pro and Debian Testing on Server
Boot from SuSE CD 1, when the boot screen comes up choose install, when asked for type of install (New, Upgrade...) pick repair. Pick expert and then tell it to check everything listed, this may take a while, and let it fix anything wrong.
