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 use redhat 9.0 on my pc. i want to know can i change my textmode view like suse textmode or debian text mode. it's look more small font, my monitor is 21" so look very big in my screen. how to change the mode text resolution?
you need to change the framebuffer mode, the bit that says "vga=788" or similar in your lilo.conf or grub,conf file depending on your bootloader. check the framebuffer howto at tldp.org for all the correct mode numbers.
you can use vga=how so that it shows you available modes. I suggest usign vga=791, it's very nice mode (no warranty that it is a supported mode at your machine). This mode doesn't list in my RH9.0 too but it works better that listed modes.
