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 have a Toshiba Satllite 4100x running Mandrake,( I think the x is for a japanese version, I hav'nt seen any els where than in Japan) I've been to the Toshiba-Linux websit where, no 4100x, but the closest version said that in general ther's no installation problem..but it's so slow and the mouse arrow moves very badly, before it had windows 95 and was much quicker. I have reinstalled linux several times but it dose'nt seem to detect all the hardware.
Pentim II 266Mhz
HDD Int: Intel PIIX4, 4,3 GB
CPU: Intel Mobile PII 266
cashmem. 32KB, 266KB
sorry forgot to say
graphic: Chips&tech B65555
(Sorry, I'm transalating from japanese so I don't know what's what. Is this suppose to be my graphic card?)
Ram is detected OK, so where can be the problem?
Is ther any other information needed so someone can answer? Why is it so slow?
Also, CDs and floppys are mounted onece then forgotten, so to it is difficult to copy files, as at halfway it says the information is not readable. Waht can I do?
Apart from that I wish to stick to Linux, all these problems make me study and I find that great!! Thank's to Linus & co.
PS:I did'nt see the "edit" button so I sent a reply to complete this mess, how can I delete it?
