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.

Hi, I have the Fedora Core 4 installed on my system. I have a dual boot with Windows XP, just to give you a basic setup. I have the ATI Radeon X850 XT PE AGP in my CPU, and I have the Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS in my CPU. I'm really having trouble instailing my video card driver. Any instructions or information with the video card, just ask. The sound card was recongized by Fedora, but no sound was heard in the sound test. I DID check to see if the sound was on, and everything seems to be turned on, so i'm lost there. I really don't know much of anything when if comes to lunix OS. I've been a Windows kid for life, but I'm starting to really get tired of the BS that windows puts you through. If you give any intructions, please be detialed because of my lack of knowledge. I've done glxgears and they are REALLY low numbers. Some furoms mention getting around 2000, and i'm only in the 300-700 range.
