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.

Running Fedora 11, Nvidia 8800 series board. Dual head wide screen is fine - I have two 3840x1200 workspaces, and for each the screens divide in half perfectly. But in Fedora 11 it seems impossible to remove the logout option from the menu, and if I log out and log back in the desktop is wrong. Though windows slide across from one monitor to the next as before, each is being treated as a separate desktop - the swicher now shows four 1920x1200 desktops, with independent taskbars, and sliding a window from one to the other moves it into the other window list. Unfortunately our application simply can not tolerate this. I know it's not exactly an xrandr or Xorg or gdm or gnome issue - they just aren't playing the game. I am surprised that when I killed gdm it still happened. I have to reboot to recover the correct configuration.
So, does anyone know anyone who might know how to get around this? And where would I try to file a bug report? Thanks for any ideas.
