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 still cannot identify clearly the problem, so any suggestion is welcome.
Newly installed RH 7.3, iiyama CRT monitor HM903DT, + Leadtek GF4200. During installation anaconda had a real difficulty to detect my monitor, finilly resolving to generic. Upon customizing I choose the closest model of iiyama and... now I have no grafi interface, X does not start, the screen is blinking and I see in text mode "login", blinking.
What should I blame: me, RH, iiyama or Leadtek?
FYI: it works under W2k but no way to see the POST screen, it takes about 5-8 sec to find an appropriate frequency, HF - 0, VF can be 500-1000 (according to selftest of iiyama).
Actually I have Leadtek 250LE MyVIVO (64Mo).
>try X 4.1.0 WITHOUT 3D acceleration,
I ran trough the install process and actually "tested" my config, it passed through... until reboot. How can I try "X 4.1.0 WITHOUT 3D acceleration"? When I select Video adapter or...
Originally posted by neo77777 ok, make use of log files, what does /var/log/XFree86.0.log complain about?
Nothing, I reinstalled RH with Generic monitor, and now I don't know what to do next, since if I modify etc/X11/XF86Config-4 in a wrong way, I'll have to reinstall it all again... How can I try some other monitor without getting to the same result? I tried A902MT-v (it's EXACTLY the same model as my HM903DT) - no way :-(
Originally posted by neo77777 Do you know exact spects for your monitor - Vertical refresh and Horizontal Sync? If you do, during OS install you can specify these values when installation gets to the X configuration part.
1280 × 1024 at 85Hz is recommended, 1600 × 1200 at 85Hz is possible max, but I tested it at 1024 × 786 at 60Hz (default) and it did not actually work upon reboot.
