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 am running Slackware 10.1 on an IBM Thinkpad x30. I compile my own kernel, and can get everything to work fine (which I am thankful for, as this is my first attempt at compiling my own custom kernel) except for ACPI suspend.
I compiled all ACPI options into the kernel (see my .config ACPI below). I can go into suspend using echo 3 > /proc/acpi/sleep. However, the computer won't wake up - the power light comes on, the sleep light goes off, but the screen is blank. This happens in both X-Window and command line mode. In command line, I attempted (with the blank screen) to do a "shutdown -r now" to no avail.
