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 have redhat 9 (2.4.20-8) defaulted to run-level 3.
with startx at the end of my bash_profile.
in my .xinitrc.
there are 2 VERY annoying bugs i cant get out of linux,
it's always happende on every install.
the first is xlock the thing icewm uses to lock the screen.
it rejects both my user password and root password.
just telling me ive entered an invalid password, (when i have entered the correct pasword) meaning i have to hit the reset switch !!!!!
and secod of all, every now and then, X freeses or whatever and i need to re-start the X server.
so i hit ctrl-alt-del, im taken to a the command line interface (x is shut-down) as expected. then.. my homitor shuts down, my hard disks shut down, and the pc goes into sleep mode !!!
when my monotor is told to shut down, it dsiplays a nitice, "going to power saving mode"
if a accidently move the mouse or hut the keypad dureing this time, the pc comes back to life, but leaves the monitor OFF, i cannot get it back on, meaining i have to hit the RESET button...
this is driving me INSANE.....
and i can find o1 else suffering the same problem.
