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.

In my complete NooBy-ness I installed Fedora 3-i386 distro on my AMD64 system. I have since found out that there is a F3-x86_64 distro for 64bit systems.
Not that it matters, as it is running fine. Question is though, what Nvidia drivers do I install for my 6600 PCIe card? Will a 64 driver stuff up with the i386 distro? Or will a 'i386' type driver stuff up my card?
Please help, its only a question of time before the 70Hz refresh rate gives me a cerebral bleed....
Distribution: Xubuntu 9.10, Gentoo 2.6.27 (AMD64), Darwin 9.0.0 (arm)
go to the NVIDIA sight they have an installer that will automaticly install the right driver for your kernel and if it can't find one it will compile one for you. you gota love NVIDIA very penguin friendly!
Don't install a 64bit driver with a 32bit kernel. but you'd get better performance with the 64bit distro. I mean you paid for 64bit why not use 'em.
