:p I'm thinking my brief foray back into linux has ended somewhat abruptly.
Got the 3Gb suse 9.2 ISO. 'media not present'
Great. Spent 6 hours installing via FTP
at the command prompt:
startx
and I get some bizzarre error about framebuffers
:p I'll have to sit down with it once I get my machines working next to each other.

If you don't mind spending the money, getting a book might be a better option. Unfortunatly I can't recommend any beginner books.

I can't name any of the services off the top of my head....if you give me a list, I can probably pick out the ones you don't need ;) But I do know that if you're on a desktop, you can safely disable pcmcia.

Also, once you gain some expeirence, compiling your own kernel can speed up things alot. Generic linux distro kernels compiled almost everything so it can support all hardware out-of-the-box. In that case, alot of modules are being loaded that you don't need.

So basically, if you want to shut down some services, here's a good method to going about doing it:
If the service name sounds like something pretty obvious that you don't use, turn it off. IE: bluetooth.
If the service name is cryptic or is something you have no idea what it'd do, leave it on else you could break some things.

Final tip I can give you: NEVER do normal things as root. Always do normal things as a normal user. You can use the 'su' command in the terminal if you need to do things as root. This will save you (especially if a newbie) from breaking things :p

Oh yeah, visit TuxEmu.com when you get the chance.

The only services I run are as follows:

1. sshd (If you don't do remote login, you can drop this)
2. ntpd (If you don't care if your clock drifts a few seconds/month, you can drop this)
3. cron (You probably shouldn't drop this unless you're sure you don't have any tasks that need to run at regular intervals)

... and that's it. Bear in mind, though, that I run a very customized version of linux (gentoo) that has stripped out everything I don't need (look above - compile your own kernel).

Also, at the moment, the only module I have loaded is "joydev"... compiled it as a module only because I've noted it causes conflicts with the nvidia module sometimes, so I want it removable. Otherwise, as a laptop, the config just doesn't change... so everything else is built right in.
