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've tried installing linux with the GUI mode and as soon as anaconda is loaded and it tries to load xserver ( i think thats what its called) the monitor goes blank, its still on with a green light, just blank. It dectects my mouse, and my monitor (DELL P1110) correctly and the says VESA (generic) loaded, then poof, blank screen.
So I tried in text mode and can install everything, choose NVIDIA FX (generic) for the vid driver and when it tries to start up it goes poof again...any ideas? TIA
I've got the newest Linux drivers on a CD now and am at the command line, I've mounted the CD and can see the file, but I'm not sure what to do now, I need to copy the .run file from the CD to /root right? then I just run sh "fliename" and it should start up? sorry, super nub question here: whats the command for copying the file from the CD to /root, Ive been going through the mans and cant find it =/
