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.

Ok, F12 has been installed, runs nice. Me? Happy. I am stuck @ 800x600, this resolution is too low for me. Doe I edit the xorg.conf to cater for higher resolutions? How do I proceed. Info can ben given, of course. So far, I run an Intel integrated card on an HP super slim system. A previous install (Solaris) thought the card was an Nvidia...128Mb...
I hand-edited the thing to have a monitor vendor and model, but the interface still only gives 800x600 at most.
In the console I popped to init 3, and than back to init 5 - I dont know if that is the right way to test...
About the monitor: you are sooooo right, but I recycled it for my server stack. Right now, that system is being prepped to become the primary system (F10 goes out) and the monitor to be used is (perhaps also not too new) an HP75, at least 17".
So...here's a flash, why dont I hook up the PC to that monitor intead.
But, good news all round, the settings are good, the monitor is (if I say so myself) ... crap. I never use it to actively look at anyway...
Have a great-great weekend - and a warm one. Here in belgium, we're getting snow, snow and ... more snow.
