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 DRI set up and working properly. When I try and play the UT2004 demo, the graphics are all distorted by shapes of odd textures (artifacts) protruding from surfaces and characters. Also, the fonts are very small and unfriendly to read. I have a Radeon 7500 M7 mobility. Unreal Tournament GOTY Edition works beautifully on here. Aside from the fonts and artifacts, UT2004 will run great. Any ideas on getting this fixed?
I'm also searching throughout the net (GOOGLIZOR!) for people who have this optimization problem of ati cards. in closed areas, I hit around 40fps but with action around, as low as 20fps of average. Same game, same configurations, on windows: 80fps average.
This is when I wish ATI could put more "love" into their linux drivers by optimizing them. Cause of these things it forces me to have windows on my system. gg you money making bastards of today's market.
I had the same grafix artifacts on my presario 2811ea notebook with the ATI radeon 7500 mobility. Then I updated my gentoo to the newest XFree 4.3.99 and now I have no artifacts anymore...so far so good. But my framerates are so miserable, it's not even worth to play it.
Game works fine and fast even with "Medium" settings in windows...anybody found out how to solve this?
