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 running mandrake 10 and after the drivers and services are loaded up and the system tries to load kde, the screen flikers and then gives me a commmand prompt login srceen. I login and try to launch kde again. it still dosent work and gives me an error saying "Fatal error: could not open default font 'fixed"' I have made sure that there is an .xinitrc file that says: "startkde", but nothing works! Could someone please help me fix this problem?
However, it sure sounds like my problem with Mandrake 10.0 last week. It plainly says it is a fontpath call-out problem. Google for XF86Config-4 for your model, as an example, and edit yours for different fontpath and see if that helps.
Tinkster, I have already found out what the error is, the system could not find the default font.
irlandes, I will try to do as you sugested, but where is the Xfree86Config file located?
thanks for the help, bcf2
