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.

Video Issues with Ubuntu 5.10 Live CD on iMac G3
Okay, I've been trying to run the Ubuntu Live CD on my friends old iMac (yes, it's a "New World" mac, with the fancy blue and white case), and it runs the text setup just fine, but after it goes through the bootscreen (the Ubuntu logo and a list of modules starting up with OK or FAIL next to them, you know the one) and after that I get no video and the power light goes orange. After a little bit I get a login sound of some sort, but the screen stays blank. The only module that fails on booting up is the system clock network synch, and that's just because it's not connected to the internet.
I eventually plan to install Ubuntu on it as soon as I figure out how to correct this video problem, so is there any solution to my problem?
EDIT: I think I should also mention, I get an almost identical problem running my Kubuntu 5.10 Live CD on my Dell. The only difference is the screen dosen't turn off, I just have a little white line up in the corner, like a blank command line display. Pentium III/512 RAM/ATI Radeon 9200
