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 am using a desktop computer which is having 1 gb ram,ge-force 2 but when i goto set the desktop effect to a 3d level the computer gets hanged/stops responding,is there any way to fic this problem and ya i am using fedora 12
GeForce2 is a NVidia graphics card so you'll need the NVidia drivers in order to use those goodies. I use the NVidia GeForce Go 7300 and before installing the NVidia kernel and drivers I had no possibilities of using any effects. After installing the correct drivers I'm using 'the Cube', exploding windows, whatever I want.
So search for how to install them in Fedora or wait untill someone else tells you because I don't know how to do that in Fedora. I use Slackware.
and look for VGA, it should show. I assume however that you got the output from your first post using that command, so your card is not detected correctly (or is that the output for the graphics adapter on your mobo and is the GeForce card one you added?)
Eric, i am really ashamed to say this but i dont know what those graphical adapter really is!! and as far as my memo helps me,i had installed geforce2(in xp) 4 years back for playing games! it worked smoothly!!
You don't need to be ashamed for anything. Well, if you're 100% sure that you have a NVidia GeForce card installed then I'd install the necessary drivers and see if that helps out. But it sounds strange to me that the card is being detected as another one.
You still haven't confirmed that this is the only graphics adapter in your computer. Is it? Is this computer a desktop or a laptop? If it's a desktop you can easily verify by opening the case and check the card physically.
i opened the case and i dint find any Nvedia card or its label in it,i guess the computer technicians dint place the card when i recently bought a new motherboard,neways now should i find the driver for the intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device (rev 03)??
Ok, no problem, just means that you don't use xorg.conf or that it's not correctly configured. What appears more important and most likely disappointing to you is that you apparently don't have enough frames per second to be 3D capable, so in my opinion no desktop effects for you using this card.
