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 just switched from Fedora 13 to openSUSE 11.3 on my laptop and so far love it...well...not quite. I'm having some major network issues. As in...no networks.
I installed everything and booted up for the first time. Everything worked great, I had wireless through wlan0 and could connect directly to my home router via eth0 with no problems. Installed a few applications and ran into some problems with hibernating/suspend modes. I rebooted and like magic, NetworkManager said networking was diabled. My WiFi light was off. Network switch on the computer didn't do anything.
I thought alright, I'll connect my ethernet cord and can go from there....problem is that won't work either. I tried searching for drivers online on my desktop, found some and transferred them via USB with no luck. They won't install. I have no idea why, or whats going on but I really need my laptop for school on Monday so it would be AWESOME to have it working by then.
Well, I removed knetworkmanager (I think?) and installed wicd and I have internet working through wicd. but on startup i get some error about not being able to connect to dbus or something. I don't remember what it is. Ill write it down and post it up next time i see it. Ethernet works as well.n.
