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 bought an msi k7n2 delta-l motherboard and amd 2500 barton processor along with 256 mb of ram. i installed fedora 1 (kernel: 2.4.22-1) on a brand new 120gig seagate asa drive without any problems.
my current cycle of events is as follows:
1. boot up. everything runs as perfectly as can be.
2. reboot. get to grub loader. no response from keyboard. shortly afterwards, screen goes blank and num lock, caps lock and scroll lock keys flash repeatedly.
3. power off computer manually.
4. the next boot works works fine.
i thought the flashing leds might mean a password needed to be set in bios so i set one but the problem is still happening.
also every once in a while (i think when the machine has been on for a while) i can't boot at all. everything is spinning but there is no beep and the boot diagnostic tool that came with the board tells me i have cpu problems. i figured this might be due to overheating so i recently cleaned of the heatsink paste that came with the fan, applied some new paste and reseated the cpu and heatsink. the same problem still seems to be happening.
any help would be appreciated as i'm beginning to pull my hair out!
