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.

Diamond Viper 32M video card (old)
everything was going fine (excluding the random mozilla crashes)...
One day last week I logged out of Xwindows and crash, nothing. I had
not changed anything. I had no idea what to do since I had not changed
anything on the system, so I changed root's password and did a reboot.
When it came back up linux booted, the screen went blank and the X
looking mouse pointer showed up, the screen went blue and the hourglass appeared, then back to black for a while...repeat 6 times ro so untill a blue text box full screened appeared and said that it had tried to initialize 6 times and would wait 20 seconds before attempting another restart. From there I switched to tty2 and just logged in normally. So I went in to /etc/intittab and commented out the run level 5 x command so it wouldn't even try that mess anymore.
so I go and run up2date, got the system current.
ran startx from a telnet session from a networked comp, and this is what I get: the server screen goes black, I get the X mouse pointer, blue screen with centered FEDORA splash (where the icons load) and all this has spewed to my (telnet) window...
