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.

Has anyone had a case of horizontal lines on the monitor screen? It is not the monitor, as connecting the system to another monitor it did not go away. So it must be the graphics card, but does anyone know what to chek next?
What happens when you switch to the console mode (ctrl+alt+f1)? If it's OK, there's something wrong with your X settings. I suggest you to install xvidtune (not 100% sure it's the correct name) and use it to test diffeent settings (small steps). Yoour settings are close to good, but the values are not what they should be.
Thanks for the suggestions! Unfortunately I don't think we're quite there yet.
Now, console mode does not change anything: The lines are still there. Second, I did not change anything in view of the resolutions. This was a WORKING installation that decided to have this behavior after a power failure and no, the lines are not moving up and down. These are fairly fuzzy horizontal lines.
