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.

Nevermind, I think it was a hardware issue. Same thing started happening in Windows. I've played with the memory and it seems to be working now. If you're still interested in what the problem was, read on:
I have just installed SuSE 9.2 to on my computer (ftp install worked like a charm!). I have it set up to dual boot, and I am using KDE. I have been having problems, however, while on the internet. Regardless of which browser I am using (Firefox, Konqueror, or the GNOME one), I get kicked out of KDE (back to the login page) when I try to move from the homepage. I can sometimes get a couple pages past the homepage, but not often.
No error message appears, just a black screen, then the login page. If there is a way to see the error report I don't know about it, yet.
I did receive the following report, whih is cryptic to my untrained eyes, when Konqueror kicked me out of the browser, but not all the way out of KDE:
Using host libthread_db library "/lib/tls/libthread_db.so.1".

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
*I did put a new stick of memory in soon after the install. I thought that this might be contributing to the problem, but running memtest didn't come up with any errors.
