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 just installed suse Linux 9 professional on a Dell Pent III. During the install the video looked fine then after it booted up it looked very blurry. In fact I couldn't navigate the GUI because I couldn't tell what I was clicking on. I tried reinstalling the packing and thought that I could go in during the install to make configuration changes to the monitor. That didn't work because when SAX2 was brought up I couldn't see anything clear enough to make changes so I had to proceed with rest of the installation. Not sure what to do now....I'm stuck.
Its a E771P Dell monitor. Actually I just bought this used system the other day without an operating system and wanted to play around with Linux. First time user. Not sure of the video card....I think just a older generic card nothing fancy. Of course now that everything is pretty blurry I can't get look at any system settings. Now when linux is loading and you see all of the white text on black screen that is somewhat distorted but readable. Sorry I can't be of more help.
Actually this sort of corrected itself accidentally. On Sunday moring I was booting it up and I heard a loud pop from the CPU case. All of a sudden everything was clear and readable. It could have been that the video card was not seated very well. I'll have to open it up and take a look. Anyway this seems ok now.
hmm, i'm happy for you that the problem corrected itself, but (there is always a but): A loud popping sound from your case isnt very reassuring, I would check it out and see if everything is still in order, if so....well lucky you =)
