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 been trying Grafpup 2.00 and I'm very impressed. Works great with a physician project I am involved with called Tkfp.
I have found 2 errors, the first of which I need some advice as to how to fix.
When I run the script /usr/sbin/resizepfile.sh, it reports that I'm not currently using a grf_save.2fs file. It complains that the file /etc/rc.d/GRAFSTATE does not exist. Indeed, this is true, because the file /etc/rc.d/PUPSTATE exists instead. I just fixed the reference to this file at the top of /usr/sbin/resizepfile.sh to read:
#variables created at bootup by /initrd/usr/sbin/init...
. /etc/rc.d/PUPSTATE #v2.02
Now the scipt runs correctly, and creates the file /mnt/hda1/grasaveresize.txt as it's supposed to, but whatever script runs at startup does not resize my grf_save.2fs file. How should I fix this?
The second problem I fixed OK, but it's more an observation. I created a grf_save.2fs file on one computer and transfered it to another with a different video card. The script that executes just before graphical login that says to switch to a different console using Ctrl+F2, run xorgwizard, switch back with Ctrl+F1 an proceed to login is incorrect. The command to switch consoles is Alt+F1 and Alt+F2. So I did that, but after a couple of successive reboots I could no longer use the graphical login screen to login as root because my password was incorrect, whereas once logged in as user grafpup and using su , my root password was correct. Further, in this state, I disabled graphical login, but logging out just immediately relaunched the graphical login screen every time so that I could not get to a console to run the xorgwizard as root.
My solution was to use a backup copy of grf_save.2fs and sart over, login as user root, immediately turn off graphical login, and reboot. Then I just use the console to login as root in "text mode", run the xorgwizard on the different machine, and I'm good.
