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.

Why don't you let us know the vertical and horizontal refres rate of your monitor, and the type of video card you have, this way we might be able to help you at configuring x
DOn't worry about it, you are not buggin anyone, this forum is to ask questions and to learn. I'm sure we be able to figure out your vertical and horizontal resolution, only post the name of your monitor, and who makes it. maybe there's some one here who has the same monitor as you do.
