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.

I am a linux newbie. I have presarion 2100, AMD2400+, ATI RADEON IGP 320m graphic card. I was able to install Redhat 9 and configured the Xwindows using VESA drivers. Redhat didn't recongised the 320m so had to use VESA. Are there new driver for ATI available for 320m. Does somebody have any information about how to use the new drivers if they are available.

Common X configuring tools:
Debian - dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86
Mandrake - XFdrake
Redhat 7.3 down - the setup utility leads to several config tools
Redhat 7.3 up - redhat-config-xfree86
You may have these tools:
# Red Hat 7.3 down configuration commands setup leads to several configuration tools
# Red Hat 7.3 up configuration commands
Configure soundcard: redhat-config-soundcard
Configure X server: redhat-config-xfree86
Configure network: redhat-config-network
Manage software: redhat-config-packages
I've got a Presario 2100 too. I have searched a lot, but there is no way: ATI mobility Radeon (IGP 320M) is not supported by xfree 4.2 or 4.3. You can set your video card as a VESA or a radeon without hardware acceleration. There are non-free projects (other than xfree) that support that card but you have to pay for them. So we should wait some time.
I have the same laptop (presario 2110) and I REALLY want 3D acceleration this card.
I have Fedora Core 2 installed and I'm downloading the XFree86-4.3.99 RPMS with the patch (link on the page above). However the RPMS are for RedHat 9...so I don't know how well they'll work...does anyone know?
