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.

Hey guys, I posted earlier about having problems with scp and file transfers with my slackware 9.1 file server. Whever I tried to scp a large file or a large batch of files, it would crash the computer (not just the services).
The server also crashes when trying to compile large projects, like remaking the kernel, which is very unfortunate. And the biggest problem is that it crashes whenever I play video.
I'm using xine to play video (came with the installation). My video card is an ati r128, and I'm using the vesa driver so I can output the video on a tv, which is working fine.
Whenever I look through the system logs in the /var/log directory, none of them give any hint as to what is causing any of the crashes. What do I need to do to log everything because whatever is being logged now isn't sufficient to gather information on what's causing the crashes.
I have 3 harddisk connected to my PCI-IDE (Sil680) (used to be 4). After running my Slackware 9.1/current) for 10 days now. my data harddisk is not responding, it says Input/output error when I do a ls or anything related to the disk. Been having this problem since 2.4.X kernel or should I say since Slackware 9.0.
After I reboot, it will be ok. Could it be the PCI-IDE is no good? How can I test?
