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 just (almost) successfully installed RH9 on one drive of my otherwise Windows machine, thereby creating a dual-boot situation.
However, I have one big question, and one big problem.
When I start up my machine, I have three (3) choices:
2. Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-8smp)
3. Red Hat Linux-up (2.4.20-8)
The big question is this: what is the difference between the two Red Hat choices?
And, the big problem is this:
Regardless of which Red Hat choice I make, my monitor invariably goes BLACK (and loses sync) just at the point of "First Boot."
At first, I suspected that this is due to the fact that my monitor is attached to a third-party PCI video card, and that at the moment of first boot, Red Hat switched over to the on-board card, rather than sticking with the PCI card.
But this is not the case, because after the monitor loses sync, I unplug it from the PCI card and into the on-board card, alas to no avail...
