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 just tried to kill a small keyboard.c bug at Toshiba notebooks. Compiling the kernel image was no problem. But making tthe modules is a REAL problem. Wetheer the the normal kernel, nor the *multimedia* kernel from Mandrake worked. There seems to be a bug (original kernel 2.4.21 worked fine!). So, who gots similiar problem and who knows a solution ?

PS: Output doesn't depend from module. Turning off ACPI makes crashing the next module source.
