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 have changed my usplash theme, and it isn't working, not only did it not change, but I am in what I think is verbose mode. I see a bunch of processes scrolling upward, and it says "ok" on the far right. So I was wondering if there would be any cause of this. I used "Startup Manage" to change it. And I'm using Ubuntu 8.04. Any help is greatly appreciated.
yeah, I tried another theme, and right after changing it, and there was all the post configuration, or something like that, I I accidentally pressed the wrong button while doing a shortcut, and it recked my install, when I restarted, I had a kernel panic. So, now, I'm going to try it, but not press anything while it's working.
I am having this same problem and every custom Usplash theme I've tried does not work, but the default Ubuntu usplash does. when i have the other themes set, upon shutdown i get "acpid: exiting" then on startup, i just get a blinking cursor instead of a Usplash theme.
I also have those "reading files needed to boot" which is an error related to my swap i just dunno how to fix it. That I can deal with though. I just want a custom Usplash!!
