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.

hi, i jus installed Redhat fedora core 4, and when i try to use the virtual console, by pressing ctrl+alt+F1, the console comes up but with a blue border around the outside. The border is the width of a character, and i could live with that, but the text on the far left is cut in two. I can only see half of the charachter that is supposed to be against the edge of the screen, but the *other* half appears on the right side of the screen. I dont quite know what to do to fix this... if anybody could help me that wuold be appreciated.
Ok. First, tput reset didnt do anything, the border was still there.
Second, my distro is 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4, if thats what you wanted.
third, i dont have a graphics card, only an onboard chip, which is an intel 82810e Graphics controller.
just so you know,
by distro we mean distribution, in your case it's fedora core 4
2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 is your kernel version.
when you post a message for help, it's best to give as much info on your system as you can. It helps to get to the solution faster.
