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.

and then it worked i can even place extended dual wallpaper on my screens like 1600*1200 ..... etc...

It's working! And it was incredibly easy to set it up:
As I wrote before, "I have laptop Acer 5024 with Ati X700 and proprietary Ati drivers 8.22.5 running Ubuntu 5.10."
There are these few steps:
1. Backup xorg.conf
2. run "aticonfig --initial=dual-head --screen-layout=right" (I have the second monitor on the right side)
It was running fine, but on the sec. monitor was completly new desktop!
3. Then "aticonfig --dtop=horizontal --overlay-on=1" fix it!
