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.

When I run xfine to get the monitor settings right, nothing happens when I press the buttons with my mouse. I thought that it would work just like the settings on a monitor. Will nvidia-drivers have some kind of tool that does this? I'm going to get the drivers as soon as I get the computer online. (it's brand new)
BTW, Why is suse 10.0 the only linux distro I have had problems with monitor settings? (Other versions are/were suse 9.2 and 9.3). The image in suse 10.0 is too far in the upper left corner.
I have issues with my secondary computer as well.
The other day my suse 9.3 somehow screwed up when I told it to restart to windows and I guess the bootloader was corrupted or something. I installed suse 10 on the same computer so now there is suse 9.3, suse 10.0 and win xp.
Every now and then when I try to boot the computer it starts to beep like hell and nothing happens. If I use the kill switch in the PSU it will boot properly. Do you have any advice for me?
Maybe it's just me but I've always found SuSE a bit squirrely with regard to video settings. That's one of many reasons I don't use SuSE, but that's just my personal experience. Some folks swear by it.
