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.

When I use the usual shutdown symbol, it goes to choice of restart, shutdown, sleep etc and I click on shutdown.... it goes to the next page which says 'Acer Aspire One' and stays there indefinitely, even if left for several hours.
I found one forum that said to enter 'sudo -h now' or similar it shuts down but still won't work from normal route.
bit of a beginner here, 1. I need a list of terminal commands to use and a rough idea of how to
"Add noapic option in your grub configuration at the end of kernel line"
I do need some basic instructions in using limpus lite and the terminal window, desp to learn by finding resources to learn from is hard.
I also just found that I can no longer 'mount' my removable volume (memory stick) which is a real pain and shows that the updates have done a lot of damage so far. All my data is stored on the stick and can't read it from this. I remember once I found a way in terminal to find mountable volumes etc... not using right terms here... need to search and find memory stick and mount it... any ideas?
does it all still work when booting from live cd?
i am running jaunty on a travelmate 2480 without any problems
Since you are a beginner my advice is to see if it still works from live cd and then do a clean install again, i know some will say that it is better to repair than to use dumb force, but for me this has been the quickest way to get back in production in my pioneering days. you are reporting a few errors that are quiet unusual, providing your computer has no hardware issues, these problems are most likely fixed if you reinstall and run your updates after for sure, i keep my systems up to date and that has always worked good for me. I first did not see which distro you were using, noticed the 'f' sign so you use fedora, something i am a stranger to as i use the three major Ubuntu's out there. still I would give these options a try, i have been able to resolve a lot of problems without going to deep into command line, but I don't shy away from the cli as much anymore.
and with regards to learning linux and finding sources of info, keep coming back here, this site has been great for me.
