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.

So I finally switched from Windows 7 to Linux, and I have to say, I really enjoy it so far.... I am currently using Pinguy 64bit, and I have configured it a bit... I am trying to get MW3 to run through Linux with Wine, but I am having a few issues....
1st Issue: I installed MW3 through PlayOnLinux... It boots up fine, but when I go to play online the game says I don't have the current DLC 1, even though I purchased it...
2nd Issue: The game is really laggy playing online without the map pack, and there is a lot of inconsistent mouse input... mouse input lag...
3rd Issue: I have two steam clients supposedly O_o.... I can either launch MW3 through PlayOnLinux, and that launches steam by it self, or I can launch steam through wine... When I launch MW3 through PlayOnLinux, it shows the game, and I can play it some what.... When I launch steam through wine, I get errors like "File Not Found" I can how ever drag the icon from the Pinguy start menu, and mark it as trusted, and then it launches... The issue here though, is that if I launch steam through wine, it doesn't show MW3 in my game library, and it wants me to install it, even though it's already installed through PlayOnLinux -_- fml....
4th Issue: Mother of All Mouse Input Lag!! OMG!! This is so annoying... In Windows I can adjust the mouse settings way better..... I want to turn off mouse acceleration, and just use the Raw Input from my mouse.. I am using a Steelseries Xai, so I don't need drivers, cause I can tweak the DPI/CPI/Pulling rate from the mouse via, the LCD on the mouse itself...
I really want to get this all sorted out.... So far Second Life plays really good, way better than Windows, and my overall experience has been awesome... I am proud to say, I am a Linux user now... :P
I un-installed MW3 on PlayOnLinux, and re-installed it on Wine, but the IW5MP.exe keeps crashing at startup...... I have it installed on Wine, but it's not installed on PlayOnLinux.. Can I get some help? I really want to play my games, I don't want to have to go back to Windows.......
