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 have installed the latest nvidia driver on Fedora Core 3 but each time I change my xorg.config to use the Nvidia driver, I get an error saying that no usable screens are found and "cannot load module nvidia". I have tried to run xorgconfig and it seems like it's not installed. I know I can use system-config-display but I am not too keen on it. How do I install which fedora package has xorgconfig?
well it works temporarily and when I reboot the PC the problem is still there. The system hangs when I try to use this driver, so I'm gonna see if a patched version of the old driver is available and try it.
Thanks a lot, I've finally got it working, but had to install a patched version of the 61111 drivers coz my system just hangs when it tries to use the latest ones. That line actually existed in /etc/modprobe.conf and not /etc/modules.conf. Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it.
well 6629 is the one thats hanging my system at boot time and any other time I try and use X. The patched Nvidia driver that I have is 6111 thats been modified to work with kernel 2.6.9. I got it from this weblog.
