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.

Yesterday i have tried to upgrade the latest -current packages, but when i reboot the system, it won't load the KDM. It stopped after loading the NVidia splash screen and when it supposed to load KDM, it just displayed a blank screen. When i tried to start at text mode (run level 3) and start graphical screen using startx, it worked (but it skipped the KDM and just go through to KDE Splash Screen
But the strange thing is most of them are library and i don't think it will mess up with rc.4 file.
btw, this is the latest changelog being used before it messed up KDM

last night i tried to reinstall KDEBASE, KDELIBS, and NVidia installer and it didn't work either. I'm not sure about downgrading to 8178 will work, since 8756 will have all cumulative patches against 8178 and it works with kernel 2.6.16+
@Alien_Hominid : in rc.4 the line exists
for now, i just edit /etc/inittab and change the run level into 3 and get the textmode running first. After login, i just have to startx and i get my KDE running. Well.. kindda silly, but it works though
