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 have just install Red Hat 8 on my machine and after several attempts it has loaded, but my monitor shuts down into sleep mode after a few seconds. When I press "tab" it starts up again but only for a few more seconds. I can edge my way into log on but it impossible to do anything. This happens in both graphical and text modes. I choose default "personal desktop" on install. My graphics card is a Geforce 440. Hoping for help
Hi rescue mode is giving me the same problem. The monitor appears to go into hibination mode. It still doesnt give me any time to get into the system and do anything.
I tried a new install with different settings and the same problems. Another try was with another monitor attached, but still the same.
Could it be anything other than the graphics?
Hi Problem solved, well almost . It lay in the "apm". I have diabled the advanced power management in the bios and this solved the problem. Now it is stable I work around to configure from here. Thanks all the same
