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.

I had FC6 on my old P4 2.8/865GBF mobo along with nvidia Geforce FX, now i bought Core 2 Duo E6600 on DG965RY mobo with no graphics card. I plan to buy Nvidia Quadro later. I didn't reinstall Fedora. Just connected the hardware and changed the driver to i810 by configuring X. Fedora is woking fine.
For the moment these are my problems.
1) I researched a bit and found this mobo has probs with the S-ATA & P-ATA things. CD/DVD drives don't get detected normally, so i paramete 'all-generic-ide, irqpoll, pci=nommconf' to my kernel and it detects it. But upon this operation, my vfat hard drive partitions don't get mounted in my regular directories i specified and i dunno where it is mounted(if even mounted at all). How to retain both these systems?
2) My display is working fine but no openGL. I need GLX support for Tvtime, Blender and couple of other things. I updated to latest i810. How do i install this?
3) And if i may take the liberty of asking a Windows question here? Can't install XP after booting from cd, gives "File \i386\ntkrnlmp.exe could not be loaded, error code 7". I guess this has something to do with the mentioned mobo.
