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.

Hello all, I'm a keen supporter of the Linux ethos and have been using it as a dual-boot for some years now. Now using Bodhi Linux 2.4.1 with my 2.66Ghtz Intel Celeron & 1GB RAM (1GB swap size) but the system hangs with as little as 31% CPU use (according to Conky) and often no applications open.
The application to run is top, it will tell you if there is a runaway process or whatnot. However, it just may be bad RAM, try running memtest overnight.
Thank you very much indeed Emerson, I ran a memtest which showed my RAM was clean but I run 'top' on every session now and consequently go much easier on my aged desktop (I am typing this on Midori and not the CPU-gobbling Firefox 26).
My first post is solved! Whooppee (and just before the hols too)!
