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 have an oldish computer with a 400Mhz Processor, 64 Ram, and an old serial mouse and 5 pin keyboard. I tried installing Linux on it but it cant find the mouse. The mouse is a standard serial mouse on COM1, I select that but it refuses to find it and it wont start the X Server !! Please help if you can
Thanks peeps for your replys, but what i forgot to tell you was that i was just about going to install it and when i press enter to install it finds unkown monitor, graphics card and picks the mouse up as "No mouse" but when i configure it on COM1 generic 3 button mouse and press ok it still fails to start X, Any Ideas please. Thanks
I'm having the same prolem, but with Slack 9.1 in a faster pc.
The com ports are working, since I have Win98 running on other partition.
My mouse is a wheel mouse(vertical scroll), serial conection.
XF86config protocol: I dont't know. In fact, all the protocols I tried have
After a lot of battle (loosed)
I tried desperately make at least GPM work on shell.
So I've started with pkgtool, to confgure GPM.
After a few (A lot!) attempt, I did the worst thing thatI could: choose imps/2 protocol.
Now when I boot my system the GPM load in wrong way and locks out my keyboard, so now I can't even log on or reboot!!!!
