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.

Location: Voluntarily move into diaster relief areas.
Distribution: Upgraded from Suse 10 to Ubuntu.
I altered /etc/lilo.conf
from 'vga=normal' to 'vga=ask'.
I saveed, ran 'lilo' and reboot. I had 30 seconds to see options presented
with the oppotunity to enter the mode I wanted, or to enter 'scan' to search for
the modes which are supported.
I typed scan. The screen came back with smaller letters and options 1 to 7
I choose 1. The resolution got small then reverted to the same old thing.
When the boot finished the icon was still there with all the previous problems.
I am on an eMachine with only 8MB onboard memory for video.
I will try rebooting with other resolutions but there ought to be a more
scientific way. Any help will be appreciated.
