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.

Just installed Mandrake 9.2 on my secondary pc, and am having a bit of a problem .. I turned off the screensaver, but after about 30 mins or so, the monitor just goes black and the power button on the monitor, little green light blinks on and off .. I tried moving the mouse or hitting a key and nothing brings it back, and pushing the power button on the monitor does nothing but turn it off/bring it back to blinking state ... so Im forced to reboot ... any ideas?

I've had a few people with NVidia's whos machine
wouldn't wake up after a power-saving in X ... turning
of DPMS in /etc/X11/XF86Config worked. In the ServerFlags
section just set
Option "NoPM" "true"
and see what happens...
Sorry, I've had Mandrake about 3 days now, not that familar with anything ... Could you repeat that --- in english --- slowly, please? Where do I find the file, and what should I do a search for and change?? ...
