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 recently installed Redhat 6.2. Configured everything successfuuly except the display resolution. i have onboard i810 chipset graphics controller with celeron 500 and 128 MB RAM. The resolution is pretty good but not up to my expectation. Colors doesn't seem to be 24 bit and fonts and icons are very big. I tried to edit XF86Config but wasn't able to get best resolution.
I already tried it before trying to edit XF86Config manualli. I was unsuccessfull at that time. I feel that the colors are good. But the problem is all the windows are wery big and fonts also makes me to feel the same.
Best thing to do is start out small, then gradually move up until you find the resolution you like. You said 24 bit, you should try a smaller bit size to start out. What driver are you selecting in Xconfigurator for your graphics?
