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, i'm trying to install Debian on my laptop but i can't get the keyboard to work.
The keyboard works on the 'bootscreen' but after i typed 'enter' or 'linux' or 'linux26' i get no reaction. Anybody had the same problem and have the solution?
The keyboard is a 'NEC Note Keyboard with One-Touch start buttons'
pass the bootkbd parameter when typing linux/linux26.
at the welcome screen, go through F3 - F5 to learn about
parameters you can use.
You'll have to set it to norwegian.
Or 'no'. Or 'ny'. I don't know. You'll have to find that out
on your own
Ok, now i gave up the debian thing and have tried xubuntu. Same problem here, but i plugged in a USB keyboard and mouse and got the install done. After the install the keyboard still does not work, i did some googling and found a link saying that i should edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and put acpi=off. This does not work, and i can't find any drivers for the keyboard and touchpad. Anybody have any ideas?
