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 having the problem recently with my computer of constant lock-ups, kernel panics under Ubuntu and Bluescreens under Windows. I've been trying to find the source of the problem, and have managed to exclude the following:
* Faulty memory - Memtest86+ has run through 51 passes of the tests without a single error.
* Faulty hard drive - I've done a runthrough of Scandisk under Windows, which reports no problems whatsoever
* Overheating - I've checked in BIOs and the CPU never gets above 62C after a crash. Similarly NVIDIA settings reports a constant 70-71C under both Windows and Ubuntu.
The thought of possible ACPI problems has occurred to me, as modifying the ACPI settings in BIOs does seem to affect the regularity of these crashes. Is it possible that this would cause these kinds of problems? Could a BIOs reflash possibly help?
