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.

Hey all, I'm back with another question. I dumped Mandrake after it wouldn't install, and I got Fedora Core 3. It installed without a hitch (!) and I really like it. But for some reason, no matter what I do in the system configuration > display setup section, my desktop doesn't fit on my display. Imagine having an 1152x864 desktop, but only seeing like 640x480. When I move my mouse to the edges of the screen, the display scrolls around. The image doesn't scale to fit my screen.
I'm running 2 monitors, and while my primary display has this problem, this other one (a smaller one) shows the correctly scaled desktop. The problem here is that it only shows a cloned image, not an extended desktop like I told it to. For now, it's good because i can at least see my whole screen until I solve the problem. I'm running a Radeon 9200, dual-vga, with a 22" NEC Accusync 125F and a 17" Gateway E700, both CRT. I installed the latest Radeon drivers, but that didn't change anything.
Any thoughts? This problem has popped up once or twice before with other users, but they didn't get any answers either. Thanks!
