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.

Justin here. I have a question (don't we all) about this error message I have been getting when trying to boot into Ubuntu 7.04. Goes to the tune of:
[ 79.123557] ..MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected to IO-APIC.
[ 79.302405] Kernel panic - not syncing: IO-APIC + timer doesn't work! Boot with apic=debug and send a report. The try booting with the 'noapic' option.
The first time I installed Ubuntu it seemed to work fairly well, and this error would go away with a restart if it ever popped up. All of a sudden I made so many changes almost without knowing it. Without wanting to take the time and see what I had done/reverse the changes, I re-installed Ubuntu. Now I have this error permanently it seems. I tried booting with the 'noapic' option, but then I lost the ability to have a GUI running, and I was essentially in DOS, which didn't help matters. What can I do to fix this?
