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've made two attempts performing a Debian Lenny install with the 'XFCE Expert' install option, configured with an encrypted LVM on /dev/sdb.
The install goes through without a hitch, but upon booting into the fresh install, it give the usual 'Volume group "foobar" not found. Please enter passphrase: '. At which point I would attempt to enter the passphrase I configured during the install. The whole system seems to lock up, to the point I cannot even toggle numlock or Cntrl+Alt+Del.
I have verified the installation medias integrity and double checked the install options, I have performed this same install multiple times on the same box with Etch.
Also... I am not using any RAID devices. Just have one disk at sda, which is not being used, and the other at sdb, where Lenny was installed to. When booting into the install 'Rescue Mode'. I was able to mount the encrypted LVM without problem when it prompted for the password.
