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 installed red hat 8 from the Red Hat 8 Bible and it went without a hitch except for one thing. None of the GUI's load. I thought I configured all the settings correctly but I was also told by a friend that red hat 8 had a bug in it that kept it from loading GUI's. Either way can anyone give me some insight as to how to fix this problem? Thanks just for taking the time to read this and kudos to those who can help!
