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 installed suse by downloading the whole tree and running it from my hardisk. Everything installed OK, but I'm having trouble configuring my sound and internet connection.
I have a cable modem connected to my puter through a realtek rtl1839. While yast2 recognizes it and says it configures it ok and dhcp selected, it just doesn't work. I try to run ifdown eth0 and it works, but whenI try to bring it back up with ifup etho it can't find an ip and says it's backgrounding. I've tried removing and reinstalling the device in yast2 bbut no matter how many times I try it it won't work, nothing.
As for my sound, it at least works...though very poorly. it plays system sounds like the various test sounds, but they're all stuttered. like when you should hear a nice test tune I just get ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba.....in that kind of stuttering way. It eventually finishes the sound, but it's way longer than it should be, and it sounds awful. My sound card is a true card....pci creative labs sound blaster ensonique.
Both my sound and network card work in every distro I've ever tried. Ican't figure out wats wrong for the life of me....
