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.

Looking around the site I was unsure where to put this thread so here goes....
I use the newest version of Mint and have a question regarding my Video watching experience. I use an IBM Thinkcentre M50 8189 with 2GB ram and a 250 gb hard drive with whatever video plugin that came on the motherboard.
This computer has video issues with video quality on youtube/Yahoo videos seem slow/pixelated low quality etc, and I would like to know if anyone is willing to suggest a low cost basic video card that is good for watching videos and general use but better than what came with the computer? I should mention I do not do any gaming so those high dollar gaming cards are not needed.
I use a 19" Haans G monitor if that matters. It came with the DVI cable so I would like a card capable of this feature.
Most importantly and why I asked this on this forum is I need it to work with Linux and Mint in particular.
If anyone has a suggestion, I would love to hear about it!
Thank you so much!!
