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 just installed Suse 8.1 and my mouse wheel is not working. I have the correct mouse selected in the control panel, but there is no option to configure or test the wheel. It worked fine in Redhat 8 and Mandrake 9. Is it possible with Suse? Thanks,
okay you'll need to edit XF86Config or if you have XF86Config-4 you'll need to edit it.
You'll find either or both in /etc/X11
If you have XF86Config-4 make sure you edit it because it will be the one loaded.
Use a text editor to open either one you're editing.
Go down to a section that is
in XF86Config-4 InputDevice
with Identifier "Mouse1" under it
in XF86Config Pointer
in XF86Config-4 add these 2 lines
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
in XF86Config add
ZAxisMapping 4 5
