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 currently installed Slackware 10.0. So far everything has been smooth except getting my graphics card, and my sound card (another issue for later) to work. As the title indicates I am using an ATI Radeon 9200. I've searched through the forums and found one post where someone said:
"NOTE: at this time there are no official XFree86 4.4 drivers available, however the drivers for XFree86 4.3 have been reported to work with 4.4"
I was curious if any of you have had any success with this. Everything I have found through Google has been quite disappointing.
Distribution: Slackware 10, Open BSD 3.6, Mac OS 10.3.7, Splack 10 beta
There are two drivers available for the 9200. The ati proprietary drivers, which work with Xfree86 4.1,4.2,4.3 (4.4 isn't on there site). It is also supported by the dri project. I could be wrong but i believe Utah gfx also has drivers for the 9200.
