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.

im really having trouble installing the driver for my ATI HD 2600 series on fedora 6. i tried downloading the driver from www.amd.com but when i run the program the CCC appears in my applications menu but whan i click on it it does nothing. it seems that its not installed properly or notcompatible on my video card. how can i get a good driver for my video card to run BERYL
i did that but the result is
"sh: ati-driver-installer-8.42.3-x86.x86_64.run: No such file or directory"
and i looked at the fglrx.log and this is the content "[Message] Kernel Module : Trying to install a precompiled kernel module.
[Message] Kernel Module : Precompiled kernel module version mismatched.
[Error] Kernel Module : No kernel module build environment - please consult readme." what should i do?
im login as the root, the "ati-driver-installer-8.42.3-x86.x86_64.run" ran, according to the instructions i should run " /usr/X11R6/bin/aticonfig --initial " in the terminal but the aticonfig is not present in that directory, i cant find it anywhere
