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.

We're trying to run a pair of robot arms from a linux pc using an xbox controller. Does anyone know if there is any support/linux drivers for an xpad? Also, does anyone know if the developmental 2.6.x kernel has xpad support? Thanks!
X-pad controllers do not connect to standard linux pc's. They have a 5 wire usb plug. Some web resources have guides for cutting and splicing the controller to have a standard usb plug on the end, which may or may not get it working.
Another possibility is to create a Linux box from an X-box. I believe the instructions are in the March 2003 issue of 2600. (You can find it on the 2600 web site in the archives.) There are two ways to do it, one allows you to continue to use games, the other becomes just a Linux box. (It is probably harder than fixing the controller, though...)
or you can just hit up http://xbox-linux.sourceforge.net/ has everything you need to install linux on an XBOX. I would have been all over it by now because i have an XBOX with a 250GB hard drive in it the only problem is there isn't accelerated 3d harware support for XBOX linux. yet
