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've recently installed Ubuntu 7.04 feisty fawn, when i booted from the cd i had to manually adjust VGA resolution to 1200X712 or something like that, to get ubuntu working, then i installed ubuntu on my SATA drive, after reboot i could see ubuntu loading, and then, both monitors just went black, my LCD showed little glitches, and the analog monitor said "H.V. Out of Range", after a few seconds i heard the sound of ubuntu's login screen, i could type ctrl + alt + F1, and i could get to command prompt, but that's it.. i've made my research, and i think there is a problem with the xorg configuration or something like that. and somewhere over ubuntu forums, i heard it could be related with the Horizontal refresh, my LCD is 50H 50V. but i couldnt get it to work.
It is a problem with your Xorg.conf. I dunno how Ubuntu auto-configures X, but you might need to google for a tutorial on how to manually edit your config file to supply it the correct values for H.sync and V.sync for both your monitors. (You can usually find these specs on the manufacturer's website or in the manual for your monitor.) Once that's fixed you should have no problems at all.
