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.

stabu - if you are booting 22 times in a row so frequently that the autocheck is becoming a hassle, it sounds like you've got bigger fish to fry. Assuming that you turn off you machine every night and reboot each morning, you would get just over 3 weeks of usage before the autocheck kicks in. One autocheck every 3 weeks doesn't sound like it should be a problem, but on the other hand if you got the autocheck every day because you were rebooting 22 times a day, well, like I said it sounds like something else must be seriously wrong. Obviously if you are doing a fresh install you will need to do multiple reboots, but realistically on a stable Linux box you should be able to go several weeks without having the system run an autocheck -- J.W.
