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 Dell C840 laptop with fedora core 2 installed and fully patched.
The system has BIOS version A13 on it.
I have a Dell 1900FP flat panel external monitor connected to the system. I need to be able to display the same data on both my laptop monitor and the external monitor. I've tried muddling with the xorg.conf extensively over the past 2 days, and the best I can do is get the display to come up on the external monitor at 1600x1200 and on my laptop screen at 640x480.
Ideally, I'd like the display on my laptop to come up at 1600x1200 and the display on the external monitor to come up at 1280x1024 (most projectors don't go higher than that).
If I can't get that to work, I'd be happy with 1280x1024 on both montiors.....
# The location of the RGB database. Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db"). There is normally
# no need to change the default.
# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.

# Option "XkbDisable"
# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults). For example, for a non-U.S.
# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
# Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"
#Option "XkbOptions" ""
