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 just got my new motherboard (abit nf7-s) and processor (xp 2100+) and reinstalled gentoo on it. I am using gaming-sources kernel because I heard it has support for nvidia's nforce2 chipset. I am using the built in nic with the drivers from net-misc/nforce-net (module nvnet). I have xfree 4.2.1 and am currently compiling xfree 4.3 and kde 3.1.
If I startx then I get my screen and my mouse is working fine (logitech mx700, usb, w/ usb-ohci module) along with the nic. After about five minutes (I think it's when I start to emerge something so possibly when the nic starts being used) the mouse locks and so does the nic. Once I back out of x I can modprobe -r usb-ohci and nvnet, then reload them, then setup my network card again and things are working. It seems like I'm having an irq conflict. I checked the logs and didn't see anything mentioned (I looked in XFree86.*.log and a couple of other ones). Where can I find out how to resolve this issue? (I also have apic support compiled in my kernel; my bios lists apic support and my last mb/proc didn't have a problem, but I'm wondering if this might be related).
edit: odd, it doesn't seem to have the problem in kde (only window maker and x [eg, startx] and a couple of others)
