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 had a similar problem which came out of the blue (SUSE was running fine for a year and a half, lost a hard drive from a power supply problem, reinstalled with 9.1 and started all over, haven't recovered the old drive data yet-boot sector/etc) where CUPS was giving me similar errors, and acting all stupid about communicating with the printer (can't find directory, can't find file, etc). I followed several threads, replaced some missing directories for cups, still no workie, but got different errors as though everything sent to the que was the wrong kind of file, so kept at it. Followed this one, didn't fix it either. Then I went back to Yassir Ain't Somethin' Tweakin' and ran the update, selected patches manually and found a CUPS update was there, too. Ran all the updates I thought might help or be urgent, and VOILA!! Cups acts like it got a new brain or something and prints, but it didn't find the USB printer automatically, tho it did so before, so I'm weirded out about that.
Maybe now I have all this ED-Jeu-CAY-SHUN, I can get the windows machines to find the printers over the wireless waves, too.
