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 a widescreen LCD moniter which, in windows, runs at 1280x800. Now I have tries for about 2 weeks now to use this resolution in Linux, with no luck. I have followed to the letter all the advice I can find on various forums, but it seems like I cannot get to run in that resolution without my moniter coming up with a blank screen and a 'Mode not supported' message box. I have the feeling my moniter is reeeally bad as all modeline generators I have tried say that it cant run at that resolution with the refresh rate I input . I would really appreciate any help you could give. I am currently running Fedora Core 3, but I was using Mandrake 10 - both giving me no better a response then the other, Mandrake giving me a Virtual 1280x800 on occasion, but not a native one.
My moniter is a Proview 15.4" Widescreen EM-W15. The specs are as follows
Pixel Pitch: 0.259mm
The only Timings I can find in the manual are as follows:
