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'm fairly new to Linux but I'm learning quickly. I'm running dual-boot with WinXP and Debian Stable.
I have an ATI AIW 9800 Pro AGP card (which works fine) and a Matrox Mystique PCI card hooked up to a 3DFX Diamond Monster 3D Voodoo 1 PCI card (which I haven't yet got working. I installed these after my initial implementation of Debian onto my computer so I don't know if it's automatically detecting them or not. I'm guessing no. Are there drivers for these in Debian already by any chance? If so how then do I activate my second video card setup? But I digress). I'm wondering if it's possible to use both video cards to display different terminals in any scenario: like 2 command lines, 1 command line and one X, 2 X desktops within a single login, or even 2 X's with different logins. Everyone seems to want to get a single extended X desktop spanning 2 monitors which is useful, but I'm more interested in having seperate terminals displayed in 2 monitors. Is this possible?
