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.

ATI Xpress 200 i found to be truely magnificent piece of equipment , however the conducter is lazy.
Today i found my way to the ATI site (/me shudders) and followed my nose through to ATI Xpress 200 Linux X86_64 drivers
