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 installed recently SuSe Linux 9.3 Professional on my laptop. I have dual boot with Windows XP.
Almost everything is working fine. However, I am having problems with my video card. I have an ATI Mobility Radeon 9000. For some reasson, the 1200x1024 resolution has a blinking vertical line in the right end of the screen. This is just annoying! I am using 1600x1400 now which solved the problem (but now I need glasses). On the other hand, everytime I restart from windows the video gets messed up! When I restart from Linux to Windows, the Windows OS gets frozen while loading (so I have to turn it off first if I want to work in Windows). Another problem I have is with the OpenGL support. When I enable the 3D support under YaST, the screensavers seem to work but there is a random black interference. If I dissable the 3D support, these screensavers run very slowly.
Surprisingly, the installation recognized my dual pointing system (even with the horizonatl and vertical bars in the touchpad). Of course I do not have support for any of the function keys.
I would appreciate if someone could give me a hand in solving these problems.
