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 am getting hard lock ups of the os periodicly where, without warning, everything freezes. I am unable to track down to source - hardware or software. Everything looks normal and works fine until it locks up.
running amd x64 3500+ and suse 9.2 pro 64. i have a MSI MS-7025 K8N Neo2 Platinum MoBo with nforce3 chipset video is gforce 5200. It has both sata and ata on the mobo, but i am running all ata. i have 3 250gb hds connected to the computer. 2 are connect to the primary controler, and controller 1 and a sii ide pci card with another 250 gb.
suse appeared to detect everything correctly, but i havent ruled out the os yet.
hda = WDC WD2500JB-00GVA0 250GB ata 100
hdb = WDC WD2500JB-00FUA0 250GB ata 100
hdc = DL DVD Burner
hde = Maxtor 6Y250P0 ata 133
You could check out the sii ide pci card by removing it. If possible reconfigure your hard drives to run without the pci card and try running without it (remove it completely from the machine). Incompatibility between the motherboard BIOS and the secondary controller BIOS is a fairly common problem and it is a fairly easy thing to check out.
