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 am new to the forum so bear with me. I installed Fedora over Redhat 8.0. The install went fine except I dont get the cool graphical screen when boot switches to runlevel 5. IS there a config file I can edit to make this happen?
i did edit /etc/X11/XF86Config as instructed. i have a good video except for the rhgb. the flickers on screen happen only when the rhgb is supposed to show up. after it, a nice login screen appears. shows only that the rhgb is not working yet the video is. please advice...
I'm having a similar problem. I installed the new Xfree86 (4.4) so that I could get my Radeon 9600SE card supported, and I seem to have lost the Fedora graphical boot (which sucks, cuz I really thought it was cool).
I checked to make sure rhgb was added at the end of the line, in both of my grub.conf files (in /etc and /boot/grub). Both files already had rhgb added, so I didn't have to change anything. I also checked to make sure the rhgb package was installed (by installing it again, it said it was already installed), and that the line of code mentioned was in /etc/init.d/funtions (it was). Yet I'm still getting a command-prompt boot process, which goes to a graphical logon once complete. There's got to be some way to get the graphical startup back, isn't there?
