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.

G'day Linus (that ain't your real name is it? I thought there was only the, ONE!)
I have the exact same problem. Until now I thought I was the only one with it in the world.
Running Fedora Core 2. I've searched the Fedora Forums and found nothing.
After reading of the problems people were having with acpi and apm I decided not to install them. Power control is turned off in the BIOS too.
A few weeks ago I did a normal upgrade. The new version of apm was there and knowing that it was a major upgrade from a new keeper, I let apt, via synaptic, install it. Only it didn't. Now no command will shut down or turn the power off. (I can log into root - bash).
At the same time I can't upgrade or install anything with yum or apt. Might be a different problem. They both return: 403 Forbidden. No trouble finding what that means. Grrrrrr...... Whose computer is it?
If you have solved the problem I would be most grateful I you could tell me how.
I don't like having to do a hard off and then wait and watch to press y on startup all the time.
