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.

Have opensuse 11.3 installed on several laptops, and in all of them it [kde] won't recognize my perfectly correct password when try to use yast or system resources in control center; has anyone else had a similar problem?
After entering the correct password (and as use dvorak, tried it under both keyboard systems), the request box blinks a couple of times, and then returns to same request for password, but with box once again empty; after a few tries, it then disappears without allowing access to yast, and I have to start whole process over again; and once more all is repeated.
Have tried to log in as root, but get same non-functioning result; while seems most improbable would have made error in setting my password on one of these computers, that would have done so on all running opensuse 11.3 is effectively impossible [have nonetheless tried many different ones and various variations -- no change]. Had hopes this might just be some well known glitch, but it seems not to be the case, then have to assume it's just like with one of my laptops wherein: 1. turned on and immediately inserted certain files from flash drive; 2. did nothing else [no wifi, no extra processor loads, etc.], but just observe as wifi light came on, and icon indictor of processor activity went crazy with activity at maximum possible for about ten minutes; 3. screen went blank; 4. reboot got bios message to please insert OS in cd slot as there presently is no OS on the laptop. Not sure if its NSA or DIA -- hard to believe CIA or FBI would be that stupid.
If you've lost your root password, you might be able to recover it using the steps below. However, some systems are protected with boot loader passwords that will not let you do that without THAT password. If the boot loader is password protected, you need to boot from other media Like the OpenSUSE CD/DVD/mini-boot. OpenSUSE install CD is probably the best one to use.
