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.

Just installed debian (Sarge, Kernel 2.6), and I have the following problem:
My maximum screen resolution is 800x600, which is way too low.
I have a GeForce 4 Ti4400 with 128 ram.
how can I fix this?
If that doesn't work, run dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86. Set it properly and in monitor section, choose advance setup and set your horizontal and vertical values manually according to your monitor spec.
no I have two new problems:
1. I am having a virtual desktop larger than the resulution of the screen.
2. when I access peripherials->display, KDE crashes on me.
I would prefer the 800x600 problem I had before..
what happened is that reconfugre would not touch the XFree configuration file because I changed it.
now its better - I got 1024x768, but I would like to have 1280x1024 (which appears in XF86Config-4) :
