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.

While I'm new to the forum, I've used Ubuntu, Fedora, RedHat and now I'm trying out Mint. My problem is, ever since I've had to replace my hard drive, my linux partitions (dual boot with Windows 7 Ultimate) will install fine and work fine until they OS freezes, I've noticed this many times a day, and it doesn't matter if I'm using the internet, using GIMP or the system is just idle. Its a Gateway AMD Dualcore TL-52, with 2GB RAM, 250 hdd, integrated video. It doesn't matter what flavor of Linux I install, they all do the same thing. Any help?
Ok, so it just happened again while surfing the internet. ctrl-alt-f1 does nothing, infact it seems like the keyboard/trackpad are completely disabled. The only way to stop it seems to be holding the power button until the system shuts off.
That sort of thing makes me think memory or heat.
Linux is typically *much* more sensitive to memory mismatch, but that shouldn't have changed with just a hard disk replacement. Try sticking a small desk fan near it and see if the problem goes away.
