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 talked to one of my friends just a couple of minutes ago, and he told me he has the same problem with his computer that you do, except he had the nvidia driver working with X already. This just happened all of a sudden, and the exact same error message is popping up (the lines with EE in them). I don't know exactly what is happening... but once i look at your Xorg.conf file maybe something will show up
This is Terry (Malhovic) here talking to you from Mandrake Linux 10.1. Alex (student04) the 'modprobe nvidia' thing worked. So I am now in Linux. Thank you so much. I know that I am probably going to have to do that everytime, but I will deal. Ohh well that is fine with me, I am just happy that it is working!
now.. we'll have to see how we can get that to load everytime you boot your computer.. My friend already posted a question on how to get it to load, so i'm going to watch that one. The link to it is a few posts up, in case you want to check at some point.
It didn't work, it just froze on that screen. I had to Ctrl+C it so that I could go and edit out that command that we put into the modprobe.conf file. Then I did it and it worked fine. Let me just get used to linux a little bit and then I will see what I can do by playing around with the files a little bit to see if they are going to work. No worries. Thank you for all of the help Alex, I am so happy that it is finally working!
