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.

One of my computers uses Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 Lenny. When I went to boot up this morning, this is what I got:
Decompressing Linux ... Parsing ELF ... done.
Booting the kernel.
[ 0.248015] PCI: Not using MMCONFIG
Loading, please wait ...
udevd : error getting socket: Invalid argument
error initializing netlink socket
Thank you for the response pentode. Yes, it was working fine the day before and there was no trouble booting up then. I have been doing updates/upgrades pretty much every day - apt-get update and then apt-get upgrade after the update. I will try a few things and see if I can get something happening. Again, thank you for the tips. I will re-post something here if there are any changes.
