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 have an Abit mobo oldschool style, with a Celeron 400 and a Celeron 466. From what I've read, I didnt think it would be possible for me to run different speed processors, but apparently it is. My bios loads up and says "Celeron 466mhz 2 processors" which actually kinda makes me think that its running them both at 466. Weird. Anyway.
So It was time for my first recompile. Slack 9.1 moved from 2.4.20 -> 2.6, took me 4 times to get it right and voila. I have sound, module support, blah blah. I compiled SMP support, set it to 2 processors. So I startx, it boots into Gnome, and I'm overjoyed. I bust open Gaim to tell everyone all about my greatness. I am moritified. As I type, randomly my keystrokes repeat 7-8 times. It's not a problem with the Gnome keyboard settings, because I didnt have this problem in the 2.4.20 kernel. I'm a complete newbie, dont get me wrong, but I just have this hunch that its because of the dual processors. While I'm typing, I can type fine for a few seconds, and then it'll repeat. If I type at a constant rate, you can see where it repeats and stops and repeats and stops almost in a pattern. Almost like my two processors aren't getting along or something. Windows 2k/XP pro never had any problem with them. For now I've had to disable key repeat, but that makes it a really big hassle deleting really big mistakes (which I make quite often). Any suggestions?
Come on man, you sent me to check out something that gets over 300 new posts a day, and I don't even know the source of my problem. I'm just speculating. And none of the search terms I've put in give me any results. I need a little more direction than someon just pointing me into a haystack and saying "find it."
After playing around some more, I realize that its not just my keyboard that does it, my mouse does it too. i.e. Ill right click, and the menu will go away really quickly, so I have to right click a few times before the menu comes up.
