Newbie..Questions


Hello everybody.
I am new to linux. i have always been on windows platform and now decided to move on to linux.

well i started with suse linux professional, i was able to install it right, i think so...i havent gotten no messages.


The first question is:

I want to make it a ftp server...do i need a software or is it implemented within suse already?

2)
can someone please tell me a good book on linux for beginners,
i just pick up today "Running Linux 4th edition" from O'reilly.

3) for some reason everytime that i boot up i have to write this when it starts

acpi=off

what can i edit or do so that i dont have to do it everytime that i start my machine.
if i dont do it my network cards wont work.
i dont know why.

thank you.

You already possess it now.

You can also look for RUTE at http://www.icon.co.za/~psheer/book/index.html.gz
Moderators, hope I am not violating any rule by posting this link ... feel free to mask this link if in violation.

You can add that entry in /boot/grub/grub.conf against the kernel entry... I guess that is the boot config file for SuSE

hypnotiks -- Welcome to LQ. I think you are making an excellent choice by investigating Linux.

ppuru -- Rute is an excellent resource, and I've posted the same link many times. Don't worry that it would be removed.

Overall, I consider both Rute and O'Reilly's Running Linux to be excellent publications. -- J.W.

The ftp software just needs to be installed when you install SuSE. Ain't Linux great? - server and client software all on the same disks.

As far as RUTE goes, to add to what has been said above, check my signature block below!
