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've got debian 5.0 lenny, kernel version 2.6.36. My dpkg is outdated, I cannot update it because the distro and kernel options are beyond minimal(too many dependencies missing, and most of them also cannot be installed thorugh .deb or apt because my dpkg doesnt support newer archive types), because the hardware is not compatible with newer versions. splashy doesnt work as much as I would like it to and generally leaves me with alot of locale and alike bugs(done locale-gen/dpkg-reconfigure loc_LOC.UTF-8 for both locales I need, but didnt help much, only resolved some PERL stuff). I am unable to install plymouth aswell. I have done:
If someone could lead me to the complete installation of plymouth under debian 5.0 somehow including million of dependencies(dpkg -i --force-depends-version & apt-get -f install done only half work for me) - that would be awesome. Or some other way to completely hide the printk during boot time, including INIT, or even manually add a splashimage for the whole load duration.
