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 use a 17" Widescreen LCD tv as my monitor. I run FC3. Is there anyway that i can get a 16:10 ratio or 1280x768 resolution on my computer. I use ATI Radeon 9800 Pro with 256MB. I would love to use the widescreen feature rather than streching the screen from 1024x768 to 1280x768. I would greatly appreciate your help.
i added a line in xorg.conf under the screen section. I added "1280x768" in modes and restarted. It worked and now iam enjoying the Wide Screen effect. Looks awesome. Another reason to not use windows.
# Any number of screen sections may be present. Each describes
# the configuration of a single screen. A single specific screen section
# may be specified from the X server command line with the "-screen"
Device "ATI Graphics Adapter"
Modes "1280x768" "1024x768"
ViewPort 0 0 # initial origin if mode is smaller than desktop
