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 tried changing my screen resolution to 640x480.. restart.. the resolution still remains the same.. and then change it back to 800x600.. still the same.. i also want to increase the resolution to 1024x768 but i can't seem to do it.. the vid card could take 1024x768 in windows environment... any suggestions?
can't find system-config-xfree86 but i found system-config-display.. when i clicked on that it gives me the "Display" window and i'm back to square one.. i can change it to 800x600 but it will still keep my resolution at 640x480...
I just install VMware Tools( it comes with both tar.gz and rpm package ) after install VMware Tools, you need to run VMware configuration tool by issue command "vmware-config-tool.pl" and select appropriate screen resolution to what you want.
