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 two mouses. one is hooked up via PS/2 port, and that one works fine, however the usb mouse isn't working, I'm new to configuring linux systems, so i need help so i can have both mouses working at the same time....
AFAIK, /dev/input/mice is usually used for USB devices (multiple, if you wish), as long as you have HID and mouse support enabled in the kernel - a fairly safe bet these days. The SendCoreEvents is used to allow more than one (non-USB) mouse to be used. This is common on laptops where there might be a touchpad, a tiny joystick (both usually PS2), and a USB mouse plugged in.
