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've suddenly started having problems with my PCI slots on a Gigabyte GA-6VTXE motherboard. I've had to move my network card around in order to get it working and my sound card is no longer seen either. It doesn't show up in lspci. All this stuff worked last night before I shut down the computer. Any suggestions? I've considered flashing the bios, but the problem I'm encountering isn't listed as one of the bugfixes.
Thanks for the suggestion, but it didn't work. Knoppix didn't detect and set up the sound correctly (but it's probably worthwhile having downloaded it anyway) and "lspci" revealed nothing. I guess I'll flash my BIOS tomorrow, unless any more suggestions come up.
