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 used 10.2 for a long time and switched over to 10.3.
I tried something on 10.2 but it messed up the system.
I did a complete new install of 10.3.
The system I installed it on was an Acer Aspire 5024 laptop.
I got the wireless card working with acer_acpi from the opensuse download site.
When I gave in my WPA key and got connected to my AP I got a keyring window. I filled it in and it went away.
When I tried to connect to my AP it wouldn't let me connect to my AP.
I went into de gnome2 keyring dir and deleted al the files.
Tried to connect to the AP and it worked. Asked for a keyring and gave a new one.
I clicked on the networkmanager on the right bottom side of the window. I wanted setup my network in networkmanager. I clicked on my wireless network and clicked on the button Set Password. Filled in my phrase clicked OK and it hangs. Waited and killed it after a while. Retried it now I got the keyring window after the Ok button filled in the password clicked OK went away and it hangs again.
Somewhere during 'testing' I got a bugreport window but could't send it because the the keyring had disabled my network so it seemed.
I booted my laptop this evening and it locked on to my AP and connected.
The only thing I did was pushing the power button. I think I fiddled long enough that the settings
in networkmanager & keyringmanager where right. I don't know what I did to make it right.
Linux is working fine. Without logging in everything starts up en start the desktop.
Maybe I was a bit quick to post on forum.
