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.

If I try to shutdown my system I get a Kernel Panic just after it says "shutdown system" I never get it any other time. The only thing that has changed in the system is the memory I put in, could that be causing this?
Slackware 11, kde 3.5, 2.4.33 kernel.
try to put the memory out, and well, if your system now shuts down properly, the problem is the memory stick.
you can test memory with http://www.memtest86.com/ ( could be useful in dealing with your seller ? )
I think one of them should be enabled. Check wiki for more on them. APM is older, ACPI is newer. Both handle power management. You should have one and only one enabled in the BIOS, and the same one enabled in the kernel (or both really, one will just fail, letting the other one work).
