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 tried to bump the mouse to wake up the computer so I could look at the tvlistings web site and see if any movies were on tonight... It was stuck, it would not wake or do anything! I think it could have been a hardware ethernet failure in the supermicro motherboard because I notice lately after booting it takes some time before the internet connection is active and the boot screen mention eth stuff but I'm not sure what it all means.
I pressed the reset button and it failed to reboot... I tried again and it booted!

If the gigabit motherboard ethernet port completely up and dies and I put in a 10/100 pci network card, will linux detect it and make use of it?
