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 recently bought a Fujitsu/Siemens Lifebook E8020 with an integrated graphics card (Intel GMA 900) and a plug'n play monitor with a 1400x1050 resolution.
I tried to install various distros (SUSE, Mandriva, Linspire), which worked fine. But when I restart my system after the installation I only get until the x-server should be started. Then the screen gets dark (Suse) or the system jumps back to the command line (Mandriva).
I fiddled around with sax and fxdrake but basically got nowhere. I also loaded the vesa-thing but it didn't help.
After I have done a little research I guess that I either have to change the xorg-configurations (perhaps) or that I should try to load a linux driver for the Intel integrated card (maybe).
Either way, I am stuck, because I don't know if one of these steps could solve my problem and how I should do it.
I installed the preview of Suse 10 and the graphic stuff worked right out of the box. No additional configruation needed. Unfortunately, the wireless didn't work and so I switched to the preview of Unbuntu Breezy Badger and everyting runs without a glitch (graphics and wireless).
