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've got an asus k8n4-e deluxe with FC5 and the last available kernel.I've a big problem because i can't manage usb and hotplug doesn't work .When i boot the kernel normally in says a lot of "PCI: Cannot allocate resouce region" and i get a kernel panic ( of course , if the kernel can't allocate PCI , it goes in kernel panic because it doesn't find sata discs) and if i append in grub.conf acpi=off , it says "..MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected to IOAPIC" and when i connect any usb device , it doesn't recognize it ( i've also looked at /var/log/messages but it seems that the kernel doesn't recognize usb device , i've also looked at lsmod and ohci and ehci modules are loaded). I've tried to reboot with the usb device connected to verify if the problem was hotplug (udev) too , but the problem remains.This link can be helpful. The problem is the faken APIC table of 2.6 kernel ( i've tried to compile from source the 126.96.36.199 and 2.6.17 too ,disabling APIC support ,"..MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected to IOAPIC" disappeares but it was useless.) I need your help because i won't really think that linux (188.8.131.52) is so bugged. Otherwise i'm obligated to install win xp.......
