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'm using a "Fellowes" optical USB mouse under RedHat 8.0 and it doesn't work. It didn't work during the installation process and it doesn't work now. It has never worked!
I tried plugging in a different USB mouse (a microsoft optical mouse) and it worked perfectly. Is there any way of getting my Fellowes mouse to work or will I have to buy another one supported by RedHat.
That sux then. But I don't really know what else to say but what z said. Logitech makes a decent USB optical mouse for really cheap. Check out www.pricewatch.com and you can probably find a better deal than I did on mine (20 bucks for a logitech iFeel).
If you plug in one mouse, it works just fine, but the other refuses to work even with the X config tweaks, then I'd say get one that does work. It's gotta be the easiest solution. Not the cheapest, although it is very cheap, but still probably the easiest.
yeah...that is weird that it works in Windows, and not in Linux, if other opticals work in Linux. hmmm.
I mean...I've personally never heard that brand name of mouse....it might just be that because it's so unknown, there's no usb support for that specific mouse....specially if there's something really "unique" about the mouse...and not a generic one. Anyway, get a new mouse
