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 silly problem but getting an headache to find the solution.
I`m trying to change the fonts of the webpages, sometimes the size is too big, other times is very small. The font name are all wrong.
Sometimes the webpage is too big for the screen, I cannot even read it all.
I`m thinking the problem is releted to the screen properties or resolution, though desktop and applications are shown correctly.
Some of what you describe is synonymous with pour resolution and insufficient graphics drivers. Linux does come with minimal graphics capability for most graphics cards or on-board graphics. But to get the best picture including fonts, it is best to compile and install full function proprietary drivers/modules for your graphics device.
Ok, I am going to start guessing here a little. I have not had any experience with this graphics card before so take anything I say past this point with caution. There is a strong possibility that we will head down some incorrect paths.
It looks like you are using the "intel" driver for your graphics card. I do not know if this is a generic Open Source driver or the proprietary driver that is specific to your card. Most of the stuff I am seeing on Google refers to the "i810" driver instead of "Intel".
Lets look in the easy places first: Do you have any options when you go to:
K->System Setting->Advanced>Restricted drivers ?
(I sure hope you are using KDE. I am completely clueless when it comes to gnome)
If so, there may be a simple solution here. If not, it may get complex.
