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.

Thanks, with stick that was written by dd Mageia was loaded.
Looks smooth. But a bit slowly than my current debian 6.
Also recognized a problem with sound/music.
Playback interrupts at the high volume (more than 70%). Looks like soundcard overload.
I've tried to change mixer settings, but it doesn't helps.
And playback stops when equalizer settings changed. Playback should be restarted.
Just installed M2 in virtuabox. Mandriva was the first distro I ever tried, might have even still been Mandrake, I can't remember. Suse was the first I got anywhere with but I didn't mess with linux for another 10 years or so. When I came back it was with Mandriva 2009 (spring?) and I quite enjoyed it, but had a few sticky points and somewhere along an upgrade and the bootloader getting borked I gave up, formatted and tried Slackware, which I've come to absolutely love. I've dual booted or ran M* in virtualbox several times since just to see how it's going. This is my first experience with Mageia and I have to say it's actually a very nice distribution....in the 15 minutes I've spent with it that is! HA! I've had time to try out the package manager to get chromium and change the display settings, both were very intuitive, and clean the way I expected them to be.
Anyway it looks like the guys did well with the fork, and I look forward to playing with Mageia 2 a bit. Cheers
