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 did some research into free flavors of Linux before setting up my machine to duel boot yesterday, and the version I picked was FC2. Everything went fine with the install, it worked beautifully. But here's my problem...
I work a gravy job, and since I don't have my laptop I bring my box up to work and plug it into their monitors and such. When I try to boot up the Fedora OS now, as soon as I start the OS booting it says that the frequency is out of range...76/74. It thinks about it for about 30 seconds, tries 80/74, then hangs up.
Is there any sort of command I can type from the command prompt, or anything that I can do to make it recognize both this monitor and my home monitor? The monitor I use up here is a Dell 17 inch E771p, and the home one is a Samsung 19 inch 955b (I'm pretty sure that's the correct model number for the home one, I'm going on memory).
If there's not any simple resolution, can anyone recommend a Linux flavor for me to check out? One that will auto-recognize the monitor (and is noob friendly)? I don't have a problem paying for a good, noob-friendly version if you guys can recommend one.
