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 a computer with Fedora Core 6 updated and the latest nVidia kmod. My problem is, my monitor is VERY dark, even at max brightness and contrast.
In Windows, I just had to use the nVidia Control Panel and increase manually the contrast, brightness and gamma of the card to get an acceptable picture. I can do the same in Fedora with the nVidia Display Settings applet and it works.
The thing is, after saving the changes, if I reboot the machine, the screen looks dark again and I can barely see anything; I log in and open the nVidia Display Settings applet and THEN the applet applies the changes in brightness, etc.
How can I configure the X server or whatever is needed in order to apply the settings automatically instead?
Thanks in advance.
P.D.: Another thing: How can I apply the same settings to the Fedora Graphical boot screen?
P.D. 2: My computer specs:
- AMD Sempron 2600+
- 1 GB RAM
- 2 HD, 40 & 200 GB, both IDE
- 1 DVD reader
- 1 DVD burner
- nVidia GeForce 6200 AGP
