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.

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.

for some reason, my shift key worked fine the whole time i've had my slackware linux 10.1 installed, however, although i left it on for weeks on end without changing settings or anything, for some reason my shift key is now acting like my control key, sorta. this is why i can't capitalize my letters, and i can't type symbols, like the hash sign or the dollar sign... etc.
i have no idea what is wrong with it, but it's really annoying, especially since i pretty much stay in the command line. i've tried reloading my keymap to see if that would do anything, but it doesn't. i of course use the basic us keymap. even if i load the dvorak keymap, my shift key still acts this way. it's almost as if i have another key stuck, like my alt key or something, but none of my keys are stuck or anything. i've never experienced this problem before, in any os, so i assumed maybe you guys could help. i'm going to try and get another keyboard and plug it in and see if that doesn't fix the problem.
