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.

Im having a rough time trying to get Postal and Soldier Of Fortune to run.
Everytime i start either game my monitor tells me that the Horizontal and vertical ranges are out of sync.
Im pretty sure its because the games are trying to set the screen to 640x480.
Does anyone know of how to override tge SOF or POSTAL settings to make them start up in 800x600 at least?
Ive tried all over the net and as you can imagine finding info on these games is HARD!
