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 do not know if this is related to linux or not, but on a regular basis my computer makes low volume beeping sounds that are like morse code. One batch sounds like dit dit dah dit dit dah and another dah dit dit dit dah. If it continues, it eventually goes to a lower volume beep and just stays on all the time with no breaks. It usually does this when I have opened several programs and am browsing and multi-tasking. I had Ubuntu crash on me once and threaten to crash other times. Never at the beginning of the boot up, the screen does not go black. I am concerned about the BIOS, the annoyance, and I also have one older 160 meg hard drive that I am unable to access. Any suggestions for checking this out?
Mobile / cell phones can interfere with soundcards.
"Bip-Bip-Bittety-Bip" sounds can be mobile / cell phone interference.
I get this all the time when I am on the move, using a 3G dognle for internet connectivity, and am listening to mp3s through my headphones.
