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.

Trying to figure out why I cannot see my graphical boot screen in Fedora 16.
I have an HP laptop, with a HD 6480G radeon display adapter. The display configuration in Fedora uses an ati/amd driver, wich works perfect, except for the boot menu.
This is the content of my /etc/default/grub:
My display in settings can put up the following resolutions: 1366x768, 1360x768, 1280x768, 1280x720, 1024x768, 1024x600, 800x600.
While I experimented last night I was able to see the boot screen once (including the verne background). Then it showed me the white logo in the middle as it went on to the login screen.
So I know it is possible, but I have not been able to replicate this. Since then I have tried with the depth in the gfxmode, and without. No results. Now I don not necessarily care for the Verne background. I can use any other picture. Would appreciate your tips or suggestions. Thanks and regards.
