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 a strange issue here. I have Mandriva Linux 2006 2.6.16-1 kernel, NVIDIA 8762 drivers installed. I can play quake 4, doom 3, quake 3, quake 2, ut 2004 and all my favorite games, but the problem I have here is that they only fill the whole screen when they are set to run at the same desktop resolution as the desktop. How to fix this? Anyone heard of this problem before? I don't really want to play Doom 3 DM @ 1600x1200...that could be a problem.
I'm using the installers from the software developers. That doesn't matter. I would change my resolution, but IIRC that requires logging out of X. The installers for ID Software games are at zerowing.idsoftware.com. Really easy to install. I don't have a problem with any other game except Doom 3 and Quake 4 - I can play all the others at 1600x1200 no problem...
Just add that other modes to the Modes lines, these modes should be your desired resolutions. These will be read from left to right (actually only important for X default resolution, the left most is the default for the X server, AKA, your desktop)
