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.

Forgive me if this is answered somewhere else, I have searched this site and a few other, as well as HOW-TOs etc. Being a newb not sure if I am searching for the right info or not.
Here is the question/problem:
I have installed SuSE 9 on my workstation which has 2 video cards a Voodoo 3 3000 and an onboard Intel ( i think its the 810 chipset ). The BIOS is set to use the Voodoo 3 and that works fine in both windows and suse. The onboard appears to be ignored by both. When I boot to linux the display goes bad, and displays a bunch of horizontal lines. I can see the boot info being displayed but its not displayed correctly. I had to change lilo to be a text based menu just so I can select the boot image. This worked out fine, but once the linux image is selected is when the display whacks out. It will remain this way until KDM is loaded. At that point everything looks beautiful. Probably a total newb issue... just haven't found the right place to look for the answer. If anyone can direct me to a doc or give some suggestions, I would be most thankful.
I know this is probably a very lame question, and its really not that important I guess. I can always just look at the bootlog. But it does bother me, and this is the newbie section... figured someone would have something to say.
... anyone .... ?
