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.

Can anyone tell me of a linux distro in which i can use my usb logitech ifeel mouse? ive used mandrake 8.0 and i doesnt work and have heard that mandrake 8.2 cant use it either. i really only need it to work as a general usb mouse... i dont need the ifeel part. also i especially need my mouse to work on the install. you cannot install mandrake without a mouse.
will that work on the install( when im installing the distro, i need to be able to use the mouse when selecting partitions and options... at least in mandrake 8.0)? also i was under the impression that my mouse wouldnt work with mandrake 8.2 -from a prebious post i read that i cannot now find. also i only need to use the mouse as a generic usb mouse.
I may be mistaken, but Red Hat 7.0 and above should allow you to install using a USB mouse, though you may have to issue extra commands to the kernel instead of doing a normal boot into installation (though that possibility is remote). Also, make sure support is enabled in your BIOS to use a USB mouse/keyboard. Some systems need you to specify that the input devices you are using are USB so they can be used in a non-Windows situation.

I use USB iFeel mices, they are the best, and work perfectly. You need USB and HID support in the kernel for it. I am sure yuo can choose a kernel to use for instalation before you start the install, just choose a USB enabled kernel. If you cant choose a kernel, well then, GET SLACK!
