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.

+ in the meantime I reinstalled the system to 32 bit version (Open Suse 10.3 32 bit), so do not be confused that you see 32-bit driver for 64-bit system
Whenever I tried to install 32 bit version like OpenSuse 10.3 or OpenSuse 11 Alpha 3, I got following error:
“Kernel panic - not syncing: IO-APIC + timer doesn’t work! Boot with apic=debug and send report. Then try to boot with the ‘noapic’ option.”
In BIOS I disabled following: "ACPI APIC Support". After I have done it, I couldn't observe kernel panic anymore
+ I am using ASUS M2N motherboard and it has nVidia chipset, so I think it can explain why I do not observe problems with shutdown after I installed drivers (although my main problem was video card, by the way I installed new drivers for all nVidia chipsets I have)
I hope what I described in this post can be helpful.
