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.

ok, finally got Fedora to upgrade my Redhat 9 installation - had to install a different CDROM drive to keep it from crapping out after loading image in the install.
Anyway - so I'm tweaking it the way I want and realize that the nvidia drivers that I loaded previously are not working correctly so I start over - ( any GL stuff don't run at all) just like it did before when I hadn't had the new driver installed...
So, I download the newest vidia driver set - install the .run file - run the display setup and now don't have the option of changing nv to nvidia -
ok, so I manually edit the file so it reads correctly and CTRL+ALT+BKSPC the x to restart - it restarts correctly with the nvidia splash screen and GL now works... cool but it's kinda choppy... didn't use to be - so I change the colors down to 65k and restart -
Now x doesn't work - and I have to rerun the configurator and setup the default TNT2 drivers and it works without GL... so I try different settings and have decided the following...
the manual editing of nv to nvidia works fine as long as you don't logout and use CTRL+ALT+BKSPC --- but if you logout or reboot it will fail every time... weird....
System is as follows:
tnt2 agp 4x
standard crap-- nothing unusual...
every package updated - even the newest kernal available via up2date utility...
