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 just replaced Mandrake 9 with Suse 8.1 on a partition. It was a clean partition b4 the install.
Everything seemed to go smoothly but when Suse tries to boot it comes up with a small box in the middle of a black screen and it says "out of frequency".
The info says the refresh parameter for the vertical is 30 -70 but it is booting at 85. Why did the install default to that refresh rate and how do I fix it?
Keep in mind, it will only boot in Linux-safe mode not gui.
I am very new so if I have to install an Nvidia driver or change a setting please be extremely specific in what to do. Even word for word from when I login with u/name and p/w.
I read posts that say do this or that and i'm totally lost.
Heres my config:
XP1800/Soltek FRV/256mb ram
LG Studioworks 700s/ Asus GF2MX400
Win XP/Suse 8.1
Thanks for quick reply.
Before I log off and reboot into linux-safe I thought I may as well be 100% clear on how to run yast2 from the command line.
Excuse my ignorance but as I said in my post, I need it spelled out to me.
Do I literally type /yast2 from the line after I enter my login details?
Thanks for your help so far.
OK, I can get to YasT and the config menu and I go to graphic card and monitor. I tab through to 'change' and press enter and after a moment the same 'out of frequency' appears and I have to hit enter a few times after the power management counts down to 0secs.
Then a bit more stuff scrolls through and then it shuts the pc down.
How can I change what I need to change?
