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.

I just bough emachines 3092 computer. it has amd athlon 3000 with 512 mb ram and 160gb hard drive. I am trying to install red hat 9.0. but it does not recognise my mouse. I tried with microsoft ps/2 and micorsof USB optical mouse and one which came along with the computer(ps/2) none of the three are recognized. If i select manually then it is getting recognized but the cursor goes hay wire even when i touch the mouse.
I Just spent 650 bucs and i do not know what to do. I am frustrated and stuck....... Please help me.
Rather than going through the whole process of downloading and burning 3 new CDs, why don't you do a media check on the three you have, and see if they're good or not (or if only the first one is bad or something, which would at least save you some work)?
i checked media it said PASS. I tried to install with two different sets of cds both did not recognize the mouse. when Interchanged mouse and keyboard ports it did not even recognize my keyboard. I tried all combinations .................and it sucks...
wherein my pre-installed windows xp works good and it recognized any mouse i attach.
i do not know what to do............any suggetions..?
Just now i went ahead with text mode installation, every thing went fine After the installation i selected the mouse type agian as p/s2, but as before the mouse goes haywire, and also it is not recognizing my sound card.

It is a shame that you are uncomfortable working with your BIOS settings, disabling USB would be where I would start. I googled for nforce issues with Linux and found this link that might be useful: http://www.math.ucdavis.edu/~bill/nvidia/
i finally got mouse to work. Here what i did. first i disable the USB controller in BIOS. then in the installation process even though the mouse is not recognized i contunued with the installation. after the installation restarted and went to bios and enabled the USB controller, this time it found new hardwared and configured properly and mouse is working now.
But my sound card and ethernet card are not working. What shall i do?
this shit is not working again. as i said in my previous post, when i disabled and enabled the usb controller it worked but the problem when i restart again it is telling me in the new hardware detection saying p/s2 mouse removed and giving me three option do nothing, remove configuration, keep configuration. If i select either of these there options again mouse not working.
I do not kwow what to do.................
I have been trying to install this for last two days, it just can't recognize mouse.
did i hit rock where in this linux is not going to work? Please suggest either this works or not. I need to either return this computer or go back to windows .
