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 am using Mandriva 2006 with guarddog firewall. I have installed skype. The instant chat works fine, but when I try to use the telophony the person I am speaking to can hear me, but their voice breaks up my end. Any suggestions about what I can do?
It is an good machine AMD K2 500, 300 odd of ram and a pipex broadband 1mg connection.
Thanks for the replies. I will give the echo123 a bash (in my friend's windows version this is built in). I was using KDE 3.4, given my processor is only 500 I presume that could be having an impact, I will try with fluxbox/ice.
I do have another problem with skype and that is I have downloaded the latest version and whilst it has installed I cannot find it in my internet menu. It was there previously when I installed the version that came with 2006. I did uninstall this to install the latest version becasue the RPM would not install whilst the original was installed. I run it now via run applications. Any ideas where I am going wrong.
No I have not had problems with my sound card, however since installing 2006 the time between sending a file to be printed and it printing has increased dramatically: a page of text can take about 1.5.- 2 minutes before it prints.
Distribution: Mandriva mostly, vector 5.1, tried many.Suse gone from HD because bad Novell/Zinblows agreement
if you have an epson (or printer compatible with gimprint + cups) and feel courageous you can look at my post on gutenprint
I have no idea why there should be latency. Switch printer off. then
tail -f /var/log/messages or syslos
tail -f /var/log/cups (or whatever it is called, cups_error, printer.log
then start pritner, wait 2 min
then try to print. You might find out
