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.

*sigh* I've installed Linux 2 days ago... upon installing it, about the only thing I knew was that Linux was free, open source, and something called "root" was very important. I have NO IDEA what I'm doing otherwise. And a list of problems. I'm using SuSE 9.0 Pro.
I have some cheap Mitsuko mouse, that's scroll button won't work now.
An AMD Athlon XP 2700,
Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 graphics card,
Nvidia Nforce 2 MoBo,
Creative Labs SB Live EMU101k sound card,
with an Nforce2 Ethernet Controller.
It took me forever to get the drivers and stuff working for the Ethernet Controller. And now whenever I restart my computer I have to go in the shell and type "modprobe nvnet" and then reconfigure the ethernet card before it works. So that's a real problem for me. I installed sound card drivers but I'm getting a nasty hissing noise on out of my speakers. My graphics card is chugging every once in a while. I mean, I need alot of help, I'm REALLY DUMB..... I really AM too.
Any suggestions whatsoever would be alot of help to me. I mean any whatsoever, I have NO IDEA what I'm doing.
