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.

Hello, every one. I am new with Linux and have resided to install on to my laptop this system. The problem is that it worked before i send my laptop back to HP prior to some Tech issues.
Spec: HP Pavilion DV 9310ca
Video: Nvidia 6150 go 256mb
Mem: 2 GB Kingston
HDD: 120 Gb SATA
So, Loading up with SUSE 10.3 DVD(downloaded from official Web Site), choosing "instal new system". Then i Create partitions such as: swap 2gb, / 30gb, the rest for /user. Installing KDE and all soft with default settings. Installation finishes, goes to reboot and that is the fun part. After boot loader appears and i`m choosing `Open SUSE 10.3`, it boots up, but at the point where it is trying to activate serial devices everything freezes.
I checked HDD connection, it is ok, I installed windows...
That partioning scheme does not quite look right either, to be honest. It seems you assume that "/user" is for user data, when in fact it contains only system files (and its name is actually /usr, no e). The part where users store their data is home. If you assigned more than 10GB to /usr, you have wasted a lot of estate. Make / 15GB and use the rest as /home.
