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.

A while ago I was trying to install Mandrake 10.0 but the installation did not recognize my mouse nor my keyboard when they were using USB. In fact, neither of them gave any signs of life (keyboard didn't have leds on etc.)
At least the keyboard worked when it was connected to the PS/2 but I aborted the installation anyway.
Does Linux support my motherboard(MSI KT3-Ultra with VIA KT333).
If so, how come this happened and can I get USB to work after the installation?
malafide; use lqo`s hardware compatibility
site to check for all ur devices compatibility with linux, & this for usb; http://www.linux-usb.org/section.html these may help if u do not find devices they may not be supported.
but most devices now are supported. try google/custom great for finding devices and
I enabled this legacy support.
In this screen were you choose between installation help and installation the keyboard worked but when the actual installation started and installation was detecting USB devices the keyboard stopped working.
Quite interresting, really.
In a couple of months i'm going to buy a new computer so maybe I have to wait until then.
Does anyone know what this Port 64/60 Emulation is?
