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.

here is the portion of my X11/XF86Config-4 that has not been changed, but when i went from testing to unstable on my laptop (debian 2.6.11.x kernel) i lost all 3D access and am only getting in the mid 100s on FPS with glxgears.
i know there is limited love for the ATI world around here, but i am kind of stuck with this vid card. it is not like my desktop were i could go out and buy a new vid card. i am not replacing this laptop for a long time to come. it just works to well for what it does 90% of the time to be replaced any time soon.
still looking for some guidance at dealing with this issue in linux. in windows i know exactly how to fix this problem, but not a clue in linux.

You didn't give your system specs so I don't know if this will work or not. And which debian release are you using? There was a bug reported that dri was the cause for your video card being so slow. So stopping the dri module from loading should have bumped you up in the 500-800fps range.Try searching google for your card and dri.
