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 using Mandrake 9.1, I have had three problems. My computer never powers off. I have tried everything and no one here has found a solution to this problem, apart from recompiling a kernel, and I am not advanced enough to do that. Will a later version of Mandrake support my motherboard?
Half of the time I start the system I have to adjust my monitor settings, as the screen goes completly mad.
Most of the time when I start printing, I get my printer printing jiberish, I was told to switch the OAW of in the printer settings but have failed to find where I can do that.
So what shall I do try another distro, install another version of Mandrake or wait till someone can tell me how to fix these problems?
I am generally satisfied with my version of Mandrake, but these three probs have really wound me up as I can not seem to fix them.
I will give 10 a try. Can anyone tell me where to download it from and do I need to download an ISO image? It was a long time ago since I downloaded 9.1. If anyone can give me the exact url of a reliable source then I will be really gratefull.
