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.

All the hardware should work. Make sure that you are installing the x86 (i386) version. Also, why are you going with Fedora 7 when the latest is Fedora 9? It's generally better to install the latest the version of the big distros. Go with Fedora 9 if you can.
I have installed UBUNTU.It is working with a screen resolution of 1280x1024.The problem is when i try to change the screen resolution,the monitor goes blank and displays a message "NO SUPPORTED MODE".Is there any hardware problem?
It could be a hardware issue, but yes, as chrim01 indicated, we need to know what video card it is running first. Generally it should be OK, but otherwise a driver might be required. It also could be the screen that doesn't support the resolution you're trying to select, or the other way around, the video card doesn't support it.
