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 accept their is no solution. How do you run two sperate x session at the same time with different screen resolutions, The lower on being for tv output. So I can view something on my crt, and something on my tv. And if possible send an application to the seperate x session.
I don't know whether I can help at all but I am interested in this:
I am not sure about the idea of separate sessions.
I don't think there will be a problem with the different resolutions, but do you have your TV out signal working okay to start with?
I ask because there can be a problem with the nvidia driver and tv out. For example, plugging in an s-video cable can mess with your framebuffer. It does on my Suse 9.1.
I read in a post there:
"... in the readme for the nvidia driver it explains how to use the 2 heads as seperate X displays, I think that's what you want, you can't drag windows from head 1 to head 2 but can run stuff on both independantly (traditional X style). It's appendix 'R' in the readme."
