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.

Ok, I have an ATI Rage Fury Pro. The card has 4 connectors on it. 1 VGA, 1 Svideo Out, 1 Composite In, and 1 Composite out. I am wondering if anyone knows how to use the VGA and either one of the outs at the same time. I want to be able to display the same thing on both screens. Basically just so that I can watch DVD's on my 27" TV instead of on my 19" PC monitor. And I want to be able to have them both at the same time so that I can control it, and get it started at the PC, then go sit on the couch and watch the movie.
I have been able to do this in Winbloze before, but since I have given up the blue screen life, I no longer have the option of dual booting to perform this function.
During boot up, if I have the Video Out plugged into the TV, I can see the the bootup process, all the way until I get to the Kernel loading options. I see the BIOS loading, LILO, and then it clicks and blanks out, and I can only use the regular monitor after that.
In Winsucks I could boot up, open up the display props and choose adavanced. Then I could "turn on" the TV display.
If anyone has any ideas for me to try, or has successfully done this, please let me know.
In the meantime, I will see if I can find a good pick of the card for ya.
