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 found the following errors in Debian-Lenny Testing. I am new to Linux and have barely managed to send a bug report. I am not sure it will get over to the Debian architects. Hence, I am taking recourse to this review section to list the bugs.
1.After the CD/DVD burning process is over, K3b ejects tray but fails to reload for data verification. Thereafter it crashes.
2.OpenOffice Writer crashes whenever attempting to insert page, paragraph or table borders.
3.Access to removable drives by different links seem to conflict in Kde. More clearly mounting/unmounting status of removable devices do not get updated immediately across all links. For example, if the floppy is mounted through a 'link to device' on the desktop, the mounted status is not exhibited by the floppy link in 'storage media'.
4.In xorg and Radeon manual pages, double quotes are replaced by the numeral 34.
5.Attempting to empty trash bin does not show any warning or confirmation.
6.In Konqueror file browsing, the left pane does not expand (nor collapse) according to file/folder opened (by double click) in right pane.
7.The login screen coming after ending a session gets completely blurred and the screen is back to normal only after several mouse movements. I am using ATi and VIA integrated graphics chipsets.
I request you friends to verify if you could, and act upon the same.
