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 guys, I love Mandriva. Like REALLY love it, I love it more than peanunt butter on ice cream and I love it more than back massages (giving AND receiving).
Problem is that somewhere around the 10.1 to 2006 bit something was brought out into the distro that freezes my IBM T41p laptop damn solid (mouse won't move, keyboard does nothing (not even numlock) no hard drive activity) after about 10 minutes of use and I can't figure out what package I am urpmi'ing in that is killing it off. Now there is no core dump, no kde error log or anything like that being created when this happens, is there somewhere that I can look to see what might be causing this? It's driving me nuts, I've had to rebuild my laptop off a 10.1 DVD a few times and it works for a while until I install some software that downloads and installs whichever the screwy dependency is and the whole lot freezes solid again.
hrm, reinstalled and tried to update but it still goes for a while and then freezes. I even installed 10.1 and then did the update straight to the 2007 gear leapfrogging 2006 (cooker stuff) and it still freezes. Any ideas where I can look to see what might be causing it?
