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 installed opensuse on my pc.it installed without a problem.So happily i booted suse happily but after loading drivers, mounting etc(which os does on boot) i got a blank screen.the monitor light was blinking.
i thought there might be a problem with installation so Installed it again.
the problem is same.
i am not able to understand what has happened...
so what i should do now??
I cant manually configure xorg....as I already have messed up with this file..and I dont know anything abt hardware so I cant do it
is there ant default xorg file which i can copy??
In simple terms, the xorg.conf file can be considered as the configuration file for your video card and monitor. It contains the specific settings your system should use for the video display, and if all you are getting is a blank screen then most likely the problem is simply that the parameters in the current file are not compatible with your equipment. To illustrate, if your xorg.conf file specifies a resolution higher than your monitor is capable of rendering, or the monitor refresh rate values are inappropriate for your monitor, then obviously the monitor will not be able to work correctly.
If you indicate exactly which video card and monitor you are using (manufacturer and model number) and also post the contents of your current xorg.conf file, that would be helpful in determining what the problem might be
