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.

Hey Fellow linux users, i am new to this forum, and preaty much new to linux it self, i have installed Linux Mandrake 9.1 it was working perfectly until last night, after i restarted i encountered some big mess ups, in terminal, it displays tainted@(none) while it should be tainted@localhost, my sound is dead, and so are some other things, i also get an error when i open Konsole, awk: cmd. line:2: fatal: cannot open file `^' for reading (No such file or directory) i looked through the bootlog, and i noticed that "AWK" is producing a ton of fatal errors, AWK does exist, it gives me an output, here is a copy of 1 of the errors from the bootlog Sep 22 21:22:45 (none) sound: awk:

Oh yea, just thought i might say, i can boot into mdk, it works ok, even though rather annoying since i cant get sound, and my gfx are kind of messed up. Please, some one, if you can help, please reply, i really don't want to reformat again, so please, any help will be apreciated
