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 am using fedora 9 in my system...I am able to boot windows in my system..when i try to boot fedora 9 the operating system selection screen appears ..if i select fedora 9 it will start the services but graphics is not loading... i mean i was not able to get gui..earliear i was not having this problem..even when i boot windows the screen will be slightly pink in colour..is this monitor problem or anything else...
i am using run level 5 in /etc/inittab file....which should load gui right??
from your words it appears you didn't have this trouble before: so does it mean you had gui before without any like problem? if so then your current problem is only a permission issue.
on terminal, at ~/ home directory:
vinaytp@host--$: sudo chmod ug+x ./.Xauthority <Enter>
(Please note the . dot before Xauthority, that's important)
<give password when asked>
then you are ready to startx:
this should launch your X.
There are times when shutdowns can force deny execute mode on .Xauthority, I have faced this many times before and the cure I shared above have always worked.
I hope it can help.
no its not working..but i changed video driver form intel to vesa in xorg.conf file
and i executed startx
now its showing the gui..of 600x480 resolution..all very big icons..and if i try to change the resolution using system-config-display...its telling resolution out of range even if i try to keep 800x600..
even i am not able to see the title bar of any window with the resolution of 600X480
