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.

How do you turn off the konsole blanking out? I know there was a thread on it related to not being able to get it back up with a nVidia graphics card, but it seems to be rather hard to find in the search. Can we go over again how to lengthen or turn off the konsole's habit of blanking out after awhile?
Side discussion: How do I change the coloring of konsole? ...like a white background and dark red letters or something...
The console uses the ansi escape sequences. usualy something like esc[nn to change the colours etc. They also work in msdos if you put device=ansi.sys in config.sys. An old dos manual should have them. ls has options for showing diferent types of files in diferent colours.
Hope this puts you in the right direction. Just to let you know I am away on holiday for a week.
Hope you have fun on your holiday. What I'm wanting is to figure out how to make like ls and vi display using my konsole colors as a default (maybe have folders as the same foreground color, but my default background color which is now white). Does regular vi use the konsole schema? I have VI Improved on my Mandrake system.
