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.

It used that in redhat 9 I could delete '/etc/X11/XF86Config' and run 'redhat-config-xfree86' to fix any resolution problems. Well, how do you do something similar to this with Fedora C2? Is font.conf the new xfree86Config file?
I had a power outage and my machine shut down abruptly. Now when it boots up I can see all the service starting but I can't get X to load up. The monitor flickers on and off for a minute then it tells me that there is an error and GUI will be turned off. Any help would be much appreciated.
I think you're right about the xorg.conf being the new XF86Config.conf file. I did try running XF86Config instead of the redhat-config-xfree86, but that didn't work. I'm sure like everything in Linux, it's been changed...

Well then you might try "xorgconfig" or "fedora-config-xorg" or something. I'm really not sure what the X config tool is - haven't had to use it in a while. Try using "XConfigurator" too. Don't forget that many Linux distros are case-sensitive, and I'm not sure if that's capitalized correctly. . .
