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.

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 earlier I had Steam running, right after I installed it, but my video card was having issues. Well, as far as I know I have solved those video card issues, but now when I double-click the Steam Icon on my desktop(Mandrake 10) it just says 'Starting Steam' in the taskbar but it eventually just stops saying that and Steam never starts... what the heck? Any help?
Well it appears I've got it all working, but now my problems becomes this... frames per second. On WindowsXP I get 40-60 all the time... would be more, but I set my fps_max at 60. On Mandrake though, I was lucky to get 30, and the models, textures, etc looked like I was running software. I'm just going to assume this is the best I can hope for with Counter-Strike on a linux system?

What video card are you using? If you did not install official drivers, be it ATI or Nvidia, consider yourself as a lucky, lucky man to even be able to start CS
It seems to be a Mandrake problem cause I tried running cs too and it was pretty slow comapred to windows and I tried a lot of different Nvidia drivers but I can't get it running fullspeed like on windows...
