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.

...as is required...
Do realise that, at install, the script gives you a choice, the tablet uses a PS/2 (internal) connection to communicate witht he touch screen, these drivers may not be around, as they are not installed...not on mine anyway...
Just sitting here, hoping to pick up some tips to get mine up and running too
Giving up now. Extensive research suggests that no current Linux distribution works on the Archos 9. Something in Linux has changed such that drvctl can no longer be written, even by root. So, Linux distros that were previously working on the 9 can no longer use the touchscreen. It's a shame really, because apart from the touchscreen issue Mageia 3 and Bodhi were running beautifully (and fast!) on the 9's limited resources. It was a good experiment but I think we're done here.
Thank goodness it wasn't my primary work computer. Celene is running wonderfully on M3 and I couldn't be happier with it.
