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.

After several months of running my laptop on a fixed network connection with Fedora C2, I have been travelling a while and have run it offline (with no problem). However, upon my return home it will not boot into xwindows and instead comes up with the seemingly common:
INIT: Id "x" respawning too fast, disabled for 5 minutes
If I try to use startx as user I get:
Fatal server error, cannot move
/var/log/Xorg.0.log to /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old
and then a couple of other messages saying cannot find file before it gives up and returns me to the promt.
If I do this as root, I get into a desktop, but not everything functions - and more importantly I cannot run all the things I had set as user..
I have changed nothing in the core nor installed any additional software over this time
Is there anyone out there who can tell me what has gone wrong and how I may fix it? I am trying to be a devoted new linux user but am frustrated by the down-time I have getting things working...
