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.

but what i wanna know is how do i install the drivers i downloaded from nvidias web page for the tnt2?
i use SuSE linux 6.3, but when i try to select mach 64 under one of the lists in SAX, it says that i need to install it.
also, my actual card is an asus V3800, and when i select that, it says that i should contact them but they were unfortunately no help.
i downloaded the 2 files in RPM format but do not know what to do next.
Distribution: Debian, Red Hat, Slackware, Fedora, Ubuntu
SuSE does appear to support RPM's, so you would want NVIDIA kernel 0.9-5 suse64 i386 rpm 09/05/2000 208436 Bytes for SuSE and NVIDIA kernel 0.9-5 tar.gz 09/05/2000 371589 Bytes
for Corel. If you download the tar just type
tar zxvf filename
A file called README or INSTALL is usually included.
