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.

Ok ok, very n00b here. Probably a typical n00b mistake, but... Here goes...
Installed Fedora, Core 2 I think... 2.4.22-1.2115.nptl
Everything worked fine except KDE didn't recognize my ATI 9600se. I looked at the list of drivers and assumed that that 9600 would work fine. Well now anytime I try and start KDE, it gets to where it loads the modules and then locks. Mouse stops working, nothing registers.
Things I've done (with very remedial knowledge):
I set the start up access level 3, so I get a prompt instead of the KDE login screen.
I tried kudzu, with no parameters. Just typed kudzu in bash. It didn't seem to do much. KDE still locked.
Things I've had people suggest:
Pull out the AGP card, let kudzu auto-detect the onboard video card. Then reboot with the AGP card back in and it should install the generic driver it initially had. I haven't done this yet. I like to learn new ways of doing things, and before going to this step I wanted to know if there was some other kind of syntax for kudzu or some other device manager I can use from bash to replace the file.
