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 recently installed FC11 for the first time, and after having some display issues with the onboard video card, I decided to try the Nvidia card from my other PC that runs windows. I install the Nvidia card in the PCI slot, plug in the monitor to the Nvidia card, and power up the PC. The boot process goes nowhere, as it immediately displays what looks like a core dump, and then gives the message ""Fixing recursive fault but reboot is needed!" and locks up.
I then removed the card, and hooked the monitor back up to the onboard video slot to get Fedora to boot up again.
Once I was back in Fedora, I:
1) Enables access to the free and nonfree repositories.
2) yum install kmod-nvidia
Once I did this, the onboard card seemed to work and I could run games with applets, however, the refresh rate was 0.
3) I tried the Nvidia card again, but no dice. Same core dump and lockup.
Any ideas how to get the refresh rate to anything from 0?
Any ideas on why the Nvidia card locks everything up just trying to boot?
