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 a Logitech Cordless Mouseman Optical but im having problems with it in linux. I used to have get a fatal error: mousedev or something but i fixed it with
alias usb-controller uhci-hcd
alias keybdev usbkbd
alias mousedev usbmouse
On my 2.6.5 kernel my wireless mouse doesn't work unless I plug in my corded ps/2 mouse in and then both of them work. (Everything works fine in 2.4.22) Even so, sometimes they stop responding at random times. I would like to not have to plugin in my ps/2 corded mouse in before my cordless USB mouse works. Also, i would like the mouse to respond and not stop responding at random times. When both are pluged in, only my corded mouse's scroll wheel works
thanks, hope i made sense.
You need to have USB Human Interface Device (HID) enabled in your kernel when you compiled it. do a lsusb to check whether your USB devices has been detected. If not, I suspect it is the kernel. I have been using USB mouses (MX700, MX300, and Wheel Mouse Optical) with Slackware with no problem at all. To get scroll working just search this forum.
