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.

One, if I resume the computer from standby, the touchpad does not work any more. Strangely, if I have a pS/2 mouse plugged in, then the touchpad will work, and so will the ps/2 one. I've tried fiddling with the xorg.conf file, but I'm not that sure about what I'm doing.
The other strange problem I have is that my pcmcia card will not resume either. On Fedora Core 3 I could restart it with a cardctl command, but now the same commands don't seem to work. However I may still be able to fix this with an update. I would imagine that a lot of other people have this mouse problem though.
I am not sure if you are using Suspend2 or old suspend (1)
Anyways before you suspend add the usb modules to be removed before suspending (therefore they should be automatically loaded upon resume. I have the following modules unloaded/loaded for suspend(1):
"usb_storage sbp2 uhci_hcd stir4200 rt2500 ehci_hcd ipw2100 ipw2200 8139cp
how exactly do I carry these operations through? Do I just type it at the command prompt before I suspend? I don't know what suspend I am using, but it is the same one that KLaptop uses. I suppose that this is the newest revision since I am using FC4.
