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 a new HP 932C printer and when I tried printing a document, it started printing a bunch of hyroglithics and it's printing out a million pages of jibberish. I've cancelled all documents in the que but can't find out where this particular job is and can't kill it so that I can get on with my normal printing. The reason, I believe, that it started printing all this crap out is because my system had a different printer set as default and the coding is FUBAR or something for this new 932C.
Does anyone know where I can look to find this job and cancel it? This frickin' thing is eating up all of my cartridge ink.
When I type 'lpq' at the command prompt, it tells me that my printer is ready and there are no entries and yet it's printing this incredible long post-script trash. I can't figure out how to kill it. Shutting power down for a day doesn't help. It's like the computer has kept this particular job in it's memory in spite of me shutting the computer and printer down for a day. I'd really appreciate some help.
