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.

OK, this is probably something really basic, but my power went out for a minute yesterday. Later when I turned the computer back on, my desktop was enlarged and so is internet browser, and the resolution is bad (like if I use google maps). It's been like that ever since when I turn it on. This used to happen on my Windows XP when it would start up in safe mode. I went onto display settings and readjusted the size of the tool bar, but the screen and file icons and internet are still enlarged. Anyone know what I'm talking about, or what to do? It also says "display unknown" when I check the settings. Thanks.
