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.

Not exactly a newbie, but I'm not that experienced with Linux (a demi-newbie?)
I had Sarge running on my old desktop pc and everything was fine but now I've installed Etch I cannot get my screen res above 640x480.
With Sarge, all I had to do was add the resolutions into the XFree86Config file and reboot.
On etch, the config file is different. I've made the changes to what I think it should be, but no joy.
The relevant parts of the xorg.conf is shown below. I've read that my monitor, a FPD1500, does not transmit its configuration correctly so you need to explicitly set it up.
If anyone has any ideas, then please let me know.
Thanks & Regards
