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.

Don't ask me. It just doesn't. Debian reads a CD is in a drive, K3B can't find the drive. A USB drive can't mount, and a floppy can't mount either. Any ideas how this happened and how to fix it? Oh-speakers/headphones don't work either.
Reinstall Etch? A day ago everything worked fine...
If everything was working fine two days ago, but it doesn't work today, then the first question is: What system changes did you make between the last time it worked and now? Did you install new software, do an upgrade, mess with kernel, etc
I haven't changed any hardware, the only thing I have done was resize a partition, my main ext3, took a gig off it, but it was a 67Gig partition. I've done it before, but I can't see how this would cause my problems...
Humm.. When you adjusted the partitions, did you by chance end up with any devices/partitions being renamed? Example, did hdb2 become renamed hdb3 or any such stuff? If so, the fstab (or whatever debian uses) would be inaccurate. And Check that the /dev nodes are correctly corresponding to the actual devices?
