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.

ok, tnx, i have a serial and USB foot pedal, i use this as my controller on my voice file(doctor's dictation)it has 3 controls, (play, rewind, forward), im doing medical transcription(Home Trans), and it has a software/driver, Wave Pedal is the name of the bundled software, the problem is that i cant get it work, i use wine for the software to run but it cant open the ports(USB and serial)maybe it has something to do with such permission i gues, i dont know how 2 use d console, i dont know the commands, pls help me on this, thanks
kinda sounds like lack for a proper firmware/driver set for the hardware for the *nix os. If you have checked the manufacture's web site with the exact model number. Have you consider any Start/Stop software where you utilize key commands? I know you have already purchased the hardware but if you are committed to *nix then you have to find something that will work. My wife does transcribing also but hasn't purchased any hardware, she uses the software.
USB foot pedals tend to register as joysticks. Check /dev/input/js0
The ones I have seen aggregate the funtionality of three pedals into two logical switches, so additional code is required to tell apart the various possible combinations.
I have some code that does this and can send keystrokes or run commands based on the pedal you press. Follow up on this thread if still interested and I'll throw the code (written in C# for Mono) up on SVN.
