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.

please help me installing redhat 7.2, i did not get my monitor to function properly even though the installation was quite good, it did not show any sort of GUI interfacing, then i would like to mention that , while installing the LINUX 7.2 my monitor did not show a clear picture of the installation window, i dono why.... i thought that was the instalation window, till i saw the similar window in the redhat website, i can't figure out the problem, i previously installed mandrake 9.0 and it was the same case there too, please help me with this thing.
i dont understand what u mean to say when to press ctrl+alt+f1 after booting linux and enetering password, iam very much new to linux and would like u to be more specific and provide me with the step by step details, please , i this regard iam very much eager to solve the problem.
first i get a screen to boot the os, it is displaying the screen quite good, no problem, after choosing red hat linux os all the processes are being initialised and finally i get # prompt, so i don't know how to start graphical user interface, i installed the linux only in that mode, but nothing fruitful, :-(
i think this might be enough, if any info needed, please ask me and iam terribly in need of some suggesion to solve the problem, thats it!
