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.

since someone started the thread, how would I set up my laptop to be able to use a usb mouse when I plug it in, and still have the touchpad active whenever I want to use that, too? Complete opposite of podollb's problem, but I figure if someone knows the answer to 1, they might know the answer to the other, too.

yeah. i'm not sure. i'm using rh7.3 and before i installed the synaptics.o touchpad driver, plugging in my usb logitech mouse caused the touchpad not to work. unplugging it would allow the touchpad to work. on my system, the touchpad worked perfectly with it's minimal functionality. on other people's laptops, i've seen the touchpad not work well at all (over sensitive movements and mouse clicking when none was done). makes me think there's no one way of solving touchpad problems. sorry i can't be of more help.
