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.

The most pressing problem right now is that when she types anything in the terminal, nothing happens. the rectangular cursor box does not move. No text is visible.
Interestingly, when she changes the language to Chinese, using the language options at the bottom right of the netbook, Chinese characters appear in the terminal window(vertical format). This, I assume, means that the terminal is not locked.
If she then changes the language back to English, once again, she can type nothing into the terminal.
As you suggested, our next option will be to reinstall the OS. She will probably install Ubuntu 10.4. (She has an Ubuntu CD.) Hopefully, Ubuntu can be installed with little or no problems. I have installed it on my laptop with no problems.
I have the original Linpus Linux installation disc here in the US but to send the CD and an external drive by 'safe' mail, e.g., Fedex, to Cebu, will cost a considerable amount of money.
If anybody known what's happening and how to resolve it, your assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Apart from that, I'd say wipe it and start again - that way you'll know the root password too.
Same problem as previous users - no response on Browser icon. I have tried a new profile as per NigelBarker. Now from profile manager clicking "Start Firefox" works fine. But from the command line and from the icon I get an error message to the effect that Firefox is already running, so restart etc. Any ideas?
