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 having a bit of a problem. I have a dual headed Nvidia GeForce FX 5700 Ultra card with dual DVI outputs that are connected to 2 exactly the same Dell 1800FP flat screen monitors.
I am running this off of a dual AMD Opteron 242 system in the 64 bit version of Suse 9.1 and am having a hard time getting the 2nd monitor to work as a second desAktop as opposed to cloning.
I have installed the Nvidia drivers for AMD64 but when I switch the XF86Config file toA nvidia as the driver things get weird. More importantly no matter what I do the 2nd flat panel is either blank or still clones so I'm at a loss and am hoping someone can help. I have attached the XF86Config file as it is now if anyone has suggestions it is appreciated.
