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'm not really all that new to linux, but this is kind of a weird problem that just popped up for me and I'm pretty sure there's an easy solution.
I've been trying to reinstall the nvidia drivers on a RHEL3 machine at work that someone updated the kernel on without my knowledge, and in the midst of doing so, I managed to screw up the console output in runlevel 3.
In order to do any of nvidia's software installations, its necessary to kill gnome and xserver and get into a text-only environment. I did that by logging in as root and running "init 3"
For some reason, after one of many reboots after a failed attempt at reinstallation, the terminal output while in runlevel 3 stopped scrolling with the text output for the terminal (ie, running ls in a directory with a ton of files just scrolls the text past the edge of the screen). Does anyone know how to turn the auto scroll back on?
I've tried the normal "scroll" commands (shift + pg up/ pg down, etc) but none of them do anything.
"clear" will clear parts of the screen, but not the whole thing usually.
