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.

... the original problem occured when there was not output to the monitor... from what the guy on the technical line said it could be a graphics card problem and send it in... but as i've said earlier when it came back it came with a better graphics card and from my looking into the BIOS its got more configurable options in the BIOS than on the one that was replaced... but as it was a 25% speed decrease on processor as was pointed out by one of the members in this forum... i did talk over the situation with the technical line person who said send it back for them to look into it... and it was picked up today in the morning...
after i explained what had happened... he said to hold on the line and disappeared for a while and then came back to say... got in to the BIOS and select the option "Load Optimized Defaults" and reboot the PC... after that went in to WinXP> My Computer> Right Click> Properties and it still said Athlon-XP 1800+ ~ 1500Mhz... ... then he said its best to send the machine in...
Originally posted by Warg I'm not sure about 2400+'s clock speed, but am pretty sure that 2500+ runs at about 1800 MHZ and 2800+ at about 2000-2100 MHZ, so it's unlikely for a 2400+ to run at 2 GHZ.
The Athlon XP 2400+ Model 10 is a 266MHz cpu with a 256K L2 cache
that's rated at 2000MHz by AMD. If I'm not mistaken, they might have
a 333MHz bus model, also, but I think that didn't start until 2500+
