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 can't see my penguin at boot time. I'm using slackware 12 and in my lilo.conf I can't use any of the vesa config. I have a i810 intel chipset. What should I do. I really miss my penguin at boot time.
I have an intel i810 card the following work, but I don't get penguin either.

Are you asking for help or supporting the statement
that it can't be done? If it's a support request:
Which distro are you using, how have you configured your
kernel? If it's *not* slackware 12 the posts are unrelated
and I'll split them out at a later stage.
I've used VESA 1024x768x64K on my work machine at my last
employment on an i810 with Slackware 12.1, and it was working
just fine, two little tuxes on boot.
have slack 12.2 installed and using the huge-smp kernel. don't know if it can be done or not.
I got the penguin on my other computer with a savage video card with no problem. On this one with the i810 I've never gotten the penguin, but never tried. Since I had the same video card, I thought I would have a go at it. I spent the last couple of hours figuring out what vga numbers will work without getting the undefined video mode error. Tomorrow, since you had it working on 12.1 I'll try and reinstall 12.1 and see if can get it to work on 12.1. It might be a difference between 12.1 and 12.2 or in the version of the i810 I have and the one on the computer you were using.

Okay... so I am not alone here. I'll try to do more research on it and hope I can be of help.
I didn't get that penguin ever since... on this machine. I had it way back before when I was using an old laptop and an old version of slackware. maybe earlier than version 10 kernel. In short I didn't tweak this machine. It is fresh installed.
