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.

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.

Two questions on FC6
I have two questions about FC6. The first one is I originally had a dual boot setup of Win XP and SUSE 10.0. After I installed FC6, it installed it's own GRUB, it will only boot FC6 and Windows. I'm assuming that I have to do something to the boot configuration file in FC6 or SUSE 10.0. I'm not sure though. I didn't do anything to the partitions containing SUSE 10.0.
The second question I have is about AIGLX 3D support. I know I sound like a little kid, but the idea of the 3D desktop is the coolest looking thing, but I don't know how to achieve that effect. I've tried looking through the display options, and the desktop background and there's nothing. Tried putting in AIGLX in the help portion and it doesn't pull up anything. I tried looking in the RPM and it tries to connect to the internet only, it doesn't try to pull anything from the install disc I have. Any help you guys can give is much appreciated or if you can point me in the direction of another post or website too is appreciated.
p.s. I have a 9200 ATI Radeon graphics card. So, I don't think there should be any problem with the 3D part.

Distribution: Ubuntu, Debian, Various using VMWare
I think to get an entry in GRUB for Suse, you will need to edit you /boot/grub/menu.lst. Copy a section for fedora, and change it for Suse (Ie change the partition and kernel version numbers as appropriate.)
For a 3d desktop, try beryl. You can install it using yum
