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 installed Redhat Linux 7.2 on my laptop quite successfully 3 days ago. However, when I start Gnome the mouse cursor is not visible despite the fact that I can highlight & click on icons (if I manage to position the pointer correctly!) I have tried to configure my mouse using mouseconfig and even modify XF86Config-4 even though my knowledge of linux is only limited to basics. I have also tried different window managers, however nothing seems to do the trick. My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite 2800-600 with NVIDIA GeForce2 Go 16Mb 128Bit and my mouse is MS IntelliMouse PS/2.
I'd be grateful if someone could provide help!
Hi, I sort of experienced similar case, and I came across more fundamental solution which I forgot.
However, the simpler way is set the video memory size smaller than the current setting. Perhaps 4Mb should work.
