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 Mandriva Linux 2005 on my computer, and I got my modem detected without a flaw (Sagem Fast 800) (else I wouldn't be able to send this post), and my printer (Canon i250) thanks to some drivers found on the official site in New Zealand, and a little help because of dependancies error related to libpng.so.2 during the installation. So, I am a happy camper - at the moment.
I tried to print under Opera web browser : no problem, except the fact that I had never been prompted for cancelling printing while the printer had no more paper, and that's probably the reason why I have problems now.
Indeed, now I cannot print, and sometimes, I get random and numerous printings started while restarting my system or turning my printer on.
The printings which are launched are exactly the ones I didn't get before...
Is there a way to cancel all of these expected printings, so that I can use my printer again ?
And last, what can I do when I don't need to print further and as my printer is temporarily running out of paper ?
Thanks for your help
(if this is not so good explained, ask me, and I will rewrite it in another way)
