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 Matrox G550 AGP and a PCI G450 ina Gigabyte board running Redhat 8,..I have both video cards installed and am having a little trouble getting both LCD's to sync and work when x windows is started. Screen 0 initializes but when Screen 1 initializes,..it has alot of horizontal lines distorting the picture. I realize that either card would probably do it by itself but I need to get it working with both cards in there. It looks as if the refresh rate or driver or something is making it flakey,..I wish I knew. I have been to numerous sites and it seems everyone has their little way of editing their XF86Config file. I wanted to post my config file in hopes that some genious out there could pinpoint my error and give a little help. I havent been using Redhat long,..only @ 2 months daily. Im sorry if I have violated any rules by posting this big of a message... =( It was kind of thrown together by using others peoples posts and recommendations,..but something is not right. Thanks for your time.
Thx marking,..I added the modes also,..and it still didnt work until I installed newer drivers,..now it works like a champ,..with all the modes too!!! All that time hacking at the config and it turned out to be a simple driver issue,..;( Atleast it works now...
