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'm running Mandrake 10.0/KDE 3.2.3, I have an Nvidia Geforce MX 200, and I installed the nvidia drivers found on www.nvidia.com :
Linux Display Driver - IA32
Operating System: Linux IA32
Release Date: August 5, 2004L
I installed it without problems, and read through the README found on the site and verified that XF86-Config-4 was configured correctly, but whenever I try to run Tuxracer, the screen goes black, and then I see the desktop again. when I run "tuxracer" in the terminal, I get the same effect, with this in the terminal:
Tux Racer 0.61 -- a Sunspire Studios Production (http://www.sunspirestudios.com)

Fatal signal: Floating Point Exception (SDL Parachute Deployed)
I've installed Stepmania on a previous installation (same everything), and it didn't work either. I think both programs use OpenGL, so I think that may be the problem, though I'm not sure. I've browsed a lot of forums, but haven't found anyone with the same problem as me. Anyone have any idea as to what may be wrong? I'm almost done migrating from Windows (just a few things to accomplish first, this being one), so any help would be really appreciated. Thanks
