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 install Linux the first time and i am desperate.
I installed SUse. In the beginning after i put the DVD in, comes a menu, if i want to install manually or not. Whatever i press here the monitor becomes black afterwards and nothg happens. Later on i discovered that there was an option, if i want to install it in text mode. In text modus the installation worked ok.
Now the next problem is, that the graphics look very bad. I have a monitor of 19 " and the resolution is not better than 600X800. Colors are absolutly stupid, as if only 16 colors are available. And this i cant change in any way. I suppose the graphic driver is bad so i got one from internet and got it installed. (i have a graphic card SIS 661FX)
Here is the link ...winischhofer.at/linuxsisvga.shtml#download
i dont know what X.org/XFree86 means .
I also went in Sax2 and changed the graphic card and the resolution. But in the list xapi there is no SIS 661FX and if i chose somethg else i get an error message "X Server Test failed"
Can somebody please help me. I cant even work on that PC now...
