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 am getting this "Failed" message at boot concerning loading usblp module - it says I have it already compiled into my kernel. Now how do I go about safely removing it, 'cause I obviously don't need it? Thank you.
And another (minor) issue: Is it considered normal to get "Failed" at boot when it says "Initializing interface eth0"? Mind you, I have DSL connection. It works fine after I login to X, it just bugs me to see that message.
oh, you could modify the scripts. But I think it'll be a mess to track down where and how exactly to make the modification. It can break things. But if you wanna take a look at how things work, I think the first place to look would be /etc/init.d/usb as far as the usblp thing is concerned.
the module should never get loaded. It might be that sometimes it just doesn't give you the error message. I get that, too, with usbkdb and usbmouse. I haven't compiled these at all, so usually there's a complaint but sometimes I can boot with no complaint. Kinda strange, but it's working so I don't worry about it too much.
