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 replace the power supply, tested memory 12 cycles Passed stress tested the CPU passed, Tested the hard drive 2 cycles complete scans passed. I tried to run the knoppix live cd it hung at the Probing/loading AGP Modules. My board doesn't have AGP I have PCI Express. with on board video unless the on board video is on a AGP bridge I don't understand the hang. It didn't Freeze. Hung the Rotating curser continued to move for over an hour. I lost my 3D effects a couple of weeks ago. and have not been able to figure out how to get them back. All my temps. are good and in range. I am wondering if there is a setting that anyone can think of that may be wrong and possibly how to fix it. Please it is getting frustrating.
