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 am new to Linux and I tried out Mandrake, and now wanted to try a new distro. I downloaded the boot.iso and burned it for SuSE 8.2. The installation went fine, but the problem is when booting up. The boot up screen appears, and the bar fills, and then the screen flashes to the screen were at the bottom it says "login" and then the screen goes black, and the light on my monitor goes from green to orange. Does anyone know how to fix this problem so I can use SuSE?!
in lowres mode, (-l) it doesn't probe for the monitor. it should run in frame buffer mode until you d/l the latest driver for the nvidia. if you have your monitor manual, you may have to enter the frequencies by hand, or at least double check them against the preselected ones that you get when choosing the Eo15. you could try a plain vanilla vesa->800x600 until you get the nvidia drivers installed.
