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 having some problems with Debian Squeeze. Starting the boot, I get the message:
[ 4.642060] ACPI: I/O resource 0000:00:1f.3 [0x400-0x41f] conflicts with ACPI region SMRG [0x400-0x40f]
[ 4.642107] ACPI: If an ACPI driver is available for this device, you should use it instead of the native driver
[ 5.679226] i801_smbus 0000:00:1f.3: PCI INT C -> GSI 18 (level, low) -> IRQ 18
[ 5.679231] ACPI: I/O resource 0000:00:1f.3 [0x400-0x41f] conflicts with ACPI region SMRG [0x400-0x40f]
[ 5.679276] ACPI: If an ACPI driver is available for this device, you should use it instead of the native driver
Any ideas? =)
Edit: H_TeXMeX_H, it's a recent installation (today).
Q: How many times do I have to say "benign warning"??????
A: If you're seeing the message, it means the OS ISN'T loading the hwmon driver, and you AREN'T going to risk having two drivers talking to the same hardware. As the Kernel FAQ link I posted said, the whole POINT of the warning is to say that the OS is trying to PROTECT you!
Q: What exactly is your PC model and motherboard type?
Q: Have you looked in the BIOS for any settings you can change?
Yes, you said it several times, but always telling me the "unless you have reason to believe otherwise". And I don't know about the system protecting me, because I can access cpufreq with no problem (so, I think ACPI is running).
Intel i3 530 2,93Ghz, 4GB RAM, Asus P7H55M-BR.
Yes, I did. I found speedstep function and ACPI 2.0 (things that are related to the error, I think). They are enabled.
This error message means that the kernel has automatically resolved the
conflict by preventing the i801_smbus (native) driver from using the
IO-ports which are also used by the BIOS. So far as I can see, no
damage will be done.
