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 suggest you desert this distro. i just installed it and it is not for desktop. i did not like yum (package installer). and it was really slow (slower than kubuntu) on my very new high end desktop
stick with k/ubuntu
That's an incredibly uninformed comment. What does not for desktop mean, and how do you know if the OP is using it for a desktop?
Slow? perhaps you didn't have it installed properly. I use CentOS ona desktop, I have both Ubuntu and Ubuntu installed on the same machine, and frankly, I can see no particular difference in speed either.
You didn't like yum? Who cares what you like! It's pretty similar to apt-get - both have their pros and cons.
Nice that you have a very new high end desktop. We're all terribly impressed.
I'll aslo point out that you are in breach of LQ rules

> kernel-utils is needed by lm_sensors-2.8.7-2.40.3.i386
I have the same with a brand new install of openSUSE 11.1 x86_64. Me pdu newbie too. I did find that linux-utils is said to be old and is no longer available. I gather that the necessary bits are in kernel_sources. Maybe there is something better or other than lm_sensors to monitor motherboard, cpu temps. Or does anyone know of a way to make this work? I've never messed with make files or fixing dependencies so I'm clueless..
