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 am using grub of version 2, and current resolution vga=795 (probably). X runs at 1680x1050. So what I would like to know is, how can I count the right VGA parameter number for grub, to use another resolution? (the method would be appreciated especially) Thanks.
Thanks for your reply Ilvista (btw where did you get that table from please?). Is there a way to use different resolution, since 1600x1200 is not supported, and 1280x1024 feels like underestimating my computer. (Not like it's too serious, but I'd really like to use higher res.) Thanks.
Ok, thanks for your answer. I'll try vga=ask right away. Though, you did not answered my second question, what is, how do you know those numbers? I mean, if there is some table specified for it, or if it's some mathematical operation. Thanks
Well, my version of grub does not support vga=ask anymore. It's replaced with another command using some vbe, which should be added to kernel. I can't find it anywhere though. Where should I search for it? (or any advice?)
