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.

Iv never used any linux before accept i booted knoppix once and screwed aorund on it but i never got farmiliar with Linux. A friend of mine wanted me to try Suse and gave me the 8 disks and 2 manuals. I made the partiton for ti with partiton magic and instaled linux fine. when i first booted it it worked out perfectly but i couldnt stand the low resolution the videocard was on. i opened the consel with ctrl alt F1 and got into the SaX2 config to change the resolution. When that was done i rebooted form the consul, and when it rebooted it loaded strait to the conul and i cant get out of it. from looking through the manual for hours wihtout much sucess i tryed the comand KDMdesktop and it told me cannot conect to X-server. wthen i tryied startx and it told me I/O error cannot start X server. I donno what to do formhere maybe im missing something basic. I already tryied reinstaling linux and it did the same thing even when i didnt mess wiht the SaX2 jsut when i rebooted it the first time.
the resolution goes back to default automaticly anyway plut the videocard supports 1024 x 1280 on windows. This problem happened even when i did nothing to the videocard also so it obviosuly has nothing to do witht he videocard. But thanks for your sugestion anyway.
