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.

As JJJCR asks:
Maybe you can also provide the specs of the machine. Is it IBM, Dell or what?
I used to have HP Proliant servers shut themselves down because of fans failing; even with redundant cooling, if enough fans fail, they shut down. I'm talking a few years ago now but I doubt that they'd change the procedure.
can you provide some more information
like the system specs ?
i have a old ( 2001 ) dell with a Gforce2 mx 400
and the INSTALLED BY DEFAULT "Nouveau" driver dose NOT start the fan on that old legacy card
it over heats in about 4 min. and the box dose an emergency shut down
i had to install the OLD nvidia 96 driver and downgrade p0arts of the os to keep if running
