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.

This is my first post, so I'm sure I'm probably about to break some rules, but I'll still go ahead and give it a shot:
I've recently installed Ubuntu 6.10, and I'm very pleased with it, but I just started having a problem with shutting down my computer. All the applications seem to be able to stop (this coming from a total Linux newbie), but right when the Ubuntu loading screen finishes to "unload", or rather, finishes the preperations to shutdown, well, nothing happens at all, it just stays there and doesn't turn the power off.
I started having this problem right after following a tutorial to install XGL Compiz on DIGGs. I'd really appreciate some help,
Try disabling Beryl/Compiz and using nv as your video driver for a test.
The X server crashed after I switched the driver's name to nv,but I was successfully able to shutdown, so I'm guessing it's really a problem with the X server not being able to terminate. Any other suggestions?
Could you please use the nv driver (which will fail) and then post the output of the file /var/log/Xorg.0.log
Be sure to copy the file before restarting the server again with nvidia, so the contents don't get lost
