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 usning Ubuntu as desktop for a while now. Received Open suse11 dvd this week with magzine subscription. So just wanted to try it to feel it. Its a nice OS with lot of packages that are not available by default with others one of them being Mono.
I am thinking of putting Suse to use but I am facing issues with shutdown and reboot. Whenever I shutdown or reboot the system, it almost completes and the progress bar stops at the end and nothing happens. It does not reboot or shutdown and I have to power off the system directly. What might be the issue? Just for info, I had the same problem while I tried Ubuntu Hardy.
Press the escape key. What is the last thing that was being done. One thing that can sometimes cause problems is with usb external drives. On my laptop, I get a problem with interupts if a SD card is in the slot. On my old laptop and my desktop, I'll see a rare instance where an external usb drive will stall the boot process. I've had this happen in both Linux and Windows, and pulling the usb cable, allows the boot process to continue.
I think most likely, a partition can't be unmounted for some reason since this is occurring during shutdown. Also, try removing the "resume=..." entry from the kernel boot options when booting up. Just delete the entry one time when booting instead of modifying the menu.lst file. I have a bit of a feeling that the pause could be caused by problems trying to write the memory to the swap partition.
