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 started out in windows about a year ago, and decided to give linux a try.
I'm currently running a gentoo box (2.6.13) and for the most part, couldn't be happier...
However, I am having an odd problem with my Canon i850.
Now I did buy the Turboprint driver, and for the most part, it works flawlessly.
However, I've noticed that when printing in applications (like printing PDFs, either through kpdf or acroread, and scribus desktop), it seems to start the top of the page about an inch down...
For example, I recently designed a doc in scribus and had it set for a half inch margin on each edge. The document itself was just text, going from margin to margin. The printout started about an inch and a half down the page, and ran off the bottom with about another 2 lines to print.
As a test, I changed the top margin to 0, and the bottom to 1 inch, and it still started about 3/4 of an inch down, and had maybe a line, line and a half of room on the bottom edge.
