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, when transacting with the harddisk in linux (suse 9.2 on amd64 with 64bit rpms), the system likes to hang randomly.
Ive reinstalled twice.
Filesystems are ext3 and reiserfs. All filesystems have been check and checked again for badblocks. None found.
The harddisk is on SATA as /dev/sda
Syslog messages? I know there should be some in /var/log, but where from there? None such issues in knoppix 3.7.
I also dont know how to check for kernel pannics so there might be some but I doubt it.
It seems that it mostly happens with the network traffic. When traffic is happening on any of the 2 NIC (and I have tried both), it tends to freeeeze.
Chipset is NFORCE4.
I have loaded the NFORCE4 network drivers.
i seem to have the same problem on my amd64. i have tried ubuntu and suse. both 64-bit and 32-bit. they both hang randomly. i run nforce3 chipset. does it have anything to do with network card or just chipset?
i run 64-bit gentoo for a while and it was running fine. but i want to run ubuntu or suse instead. help me out here.
by random hangs i mean that it just stops responding. from what i have noticed it hangs when i am put load on hard drive. such as, last time ubuntu hung was when i was downloading something. and before that it hung when i was copying a large iso fine on my hard drive.
In gentoo, i run 2004.3 64bit natively. No hangups, no straw, nothing.
With suse this aint the case.
Thus,I'll check with the new suse 9.3 wheather this has been resolved, though I doubt it.
I have a very strong feeling towards the network being the problem. Currently I use forcedeth as the network driver, NOT nvidia's drivers.
Wintos only detects one NIC, though both works fine in gentoo with modules: sk98lin and forcedeth.
The problem lies with it hanging.
This is also not n KDE/X problem because I tried uploading stuff via sftp and it also happened as soon as the transfer started.
As I have gentoo running now, I cant install suse.
Please check "dmesg" for me and "grep" if needed for eth0 or something like this:
dmesg | grep eth0 <ENTER>
nop, no luck. i tried all those options on suse and ubuntu. i dont have gentoo install anymore because i wanted to see if the same problem happens on other distros. well, good that you have solved the problem.
now help me out, my computer still freezes. after all those options and reinstalling 10 times.
