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, first of all thanx a lot. I've solved the fisrt 3. Now, more info:
I'm using kde 3.4 which came with slack. Do I have a kernel source installed? huh, how do I know that? I unstalled all the packages that came on dvd, and never touched other stuff.. How can I check that?
kernel-source-2.4.31-noarch-1-this should be it? right? now what?
Yes, the last entry says the kernel source is installed. Can you tell us what was missing? Are you sure there is no nvidia module installed -- you know you have to edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf afterwards to make the compiled module load? You can post the output of
find /lib/modules -iname "*nvidia*"
That will tell us if the nvida module was properly compiled.
It's okay if it says that there's no precompiled module for the installed kernel. The nvidia installer will build and install it for you. Be sure to make the changes in xorg.conf. Look at the README or INSTALL file from the nvidia installer. You definitely have to replace "nv" with "nvidia" as driver, not sure about the rest.
EDIT: Too slow the link you posted looks fine.
