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'm running Fedora Core 2, on a new pc. i've never had linux on this system before, so installing these drivers is new to me.
following the instructions on the ati site, i've installed the rpm and run its configuration program.
however when i restart X, its still using the Mesa GL driver and not the accelerated one.
the howto just says to run through their instructions again....but still, no effect.
has anyone got a fool-proof method of getting this up and running?
Nope, nothing wrong there. Try rebooting your computer. Then, once into KDE/GNOME/whatever, go to the menu, and see if there is an "ATI Control" entry. If so, click it, and read the first tab of the dialog that opens. It will tell you if it is using the mesa driver or the ATI one.
