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 am trying to run some old games in win2k and it does not want to work. When I run certain games it says it can't use a display mode like "640x480x16 bits" for example, then it asks me if I want to switch to different display mode. If that doesn't work it tells me I need a vesa driver. I have tried 2 or three kinds of vesa drivers and they don't work. In the process of looking for a vesa driver I think I learned that I may need a specific kind of vesa driver for my video card. So basically I need to know what is wrong and if I can fix it and if so how. If anyone can provide any help it would be greatly appreciated.
I'm not entirely sure if I am in the right place to find an answer to my problem but when I searched for an answer this place came up and seems like the most promising place to find the soultion to my problem. I have no idea what's wrong and I just want to play some old games, so I hope someone out there know what I should do.
