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.

This is Nvidia's "Nvidia + Linux" forum. I seem to recall there being some discussions on getting the proprietary driver to play nicely. You'll need to join before you can search the forum, but it's not a big deal.
So I decided to try to install suspend2 for dapper (2.6.15-28-686) but always get a error that my patch won't apply cleanly. This is not as surprise according to the Software Suspend2 HOWTO:
Once you have succeeded in compiling your kernel, you can apply the Suspend2 patches against your source tree. This is most easily done using a command along the lines of...
cd /usr/src/linux (the root directory of your tree)
bzcat /path/to/patch | patch -p1
If the kernel versions match, then no rejects or offsets should occur. If your kernel is not the vanilla one from kernel.org, you will have to apply these patches manually and edit some of the rejected hunks.
I'm using the current running ubuntu kernel (2.6.15-28-686), not a vanilla kernel from kernel.org.
1) What are the differences between the ubuntu kernel and a vanilla kernel?
2) How do I edit (customise) the patches so that they'll apply cleanly to my kernel?
