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 use SuSE 9.1 on an old HP Pavilion P3 750/ 512MB/onboard Intel video/20 GB WD
whenever i choose 'lock screen' from the kde menu, or whenever the password-protected screensaver starts, my computer requires a restart to work properly. the screensaver will start, and if i move the mouse i get a dialog to input my password, which i do. pressing enter and/or clicking ok does nothing. pressing cancel goes back to the screensaver. switch user sometimes brings me back to the initial login screen, and sometimes locks me up. even if i do get to the login screen and finally back to my desktop, i have maybe 5 minutes before either the system freezes or just goes back to the text-only prompt and asks for a login. at this point i restart cause i don't know much about the non-graphical stuff.
my screensaver is the matrix and the only programs that would be running behind it are kopete (logged in but away) and Folding@Home. hopefully there's a solution to this, it's really frustrating.
