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 managed to make my slack boot up with vesa framebuffer, the problem is that no matter what VGA option i put in lilo.conf, it goes to 640x480
however, X works with a 1280x1024x24 resolution
what can i do to make it work?
i did run lilo after modifying the .conf file, it's not that and i think it's not my video card either as it works in X and as i recall it worked at boot time before i recompiled the kernel
but thanks for your trouble
the thing still doesn't work, no matter what value i give to lilo it goes into 640x480
what bothers me is that it used to work with the first kernel i had, but i had to change that one and i erased it
isn't there another kernel config option that affects this, besides VESA Framebuffer?
thanks for you trouble
