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.

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 purchased my first Linux two days ago; SuSe 9,3. And this is my very first message! Now I've got difficulties with my Microsoft wireless multimedia keyboard. I wonder does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you.
I have found that it can make a difference what USB port you have the keyboard plugged into. Try different ports and see if you have any luck. Also, you can try booting up and logging in with a standard PS/2 keyboard, and then plugging in your USB keyboard once you are logged in to KDE/Gnome. It might then autodetect. I remember I did once get a wireless USB keyboard and mouse working on a friend's machine under SUSE. My own (non-cordless) USB keyboard works with SUSE 9.2.
Thank you for paying attention to my question. I am not sure what that module is? I did 'google' Linux drivers, and I did receive answers, I really did! But you mentioned this module, where should I turn to in order to find answers?

I couldn't say, I don't use a USB keyboard...but if you log in with it in the PS/2 port then do an lsmod (as root) as see what modules are loaded. Then plug it into usb port and do another lsmod and see if anything new was loaded. That's probably the module you need. Also, see what dmesg says after plugging the keyboard into the usb port.
