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.

So far as I know SuSE 9.3 plays nicely with ipods but I've not upgraded from 9.1 yet so I don't know. I recently installed Ubuntu 5.04 and made it read my ipod using gtkpod (after a slight modification of fstab). Anyway, there are tons of instructions about using ipods in Linux if you try googling ipod and [name of distro].
I'm using SuSe 9.3 w/ an ipod shuffle and it works great. I'm using gnupod
Install that and follow the instructions. Runs from the command line, so less opportunties for bugs than graphical programs like gtkpod. PM me if you need any help on mounting ipod/using gnupod in SuSe.
i tried to install both of them on my Mandrake 10.2 but i get errors. i get a perl error. it tells me to install XML Parser. so i did and then when i tried to install it. i got an error too. when i try to install gnupod i get this "Package gtk+-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gtk+-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gtk+-2.0' found
configure: error: ***"
then when i try to install this XML Parser i get this message "[root@localhost XML-Parser-2.34]# make
make: Entering directory `/home/shockerz/Desktop/XML-Parser-2.34/XML-Parser-2.34/Expat'
make: *** No rule to make target `/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.6/i386-linux/CORE/EXTERN.h', needed by `Expat.o'. Stop.
make: Leaving directory `/home/shockerz/Desktop/XML-Parser-2.34/XML-Parser-2.34/Expat'
make: *** [subdirs] Error 2
ok- to install software, you often need to install something that it depends on. (called dependancies) and so on. have you seen urpmi (google that and easyurpmi) and Yast for suse (again, google) that should get you dependencies resolutions.
