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.

OK, I screwed up and need help! I was having trouble getting my fonts to look right and so I went to the font installer and deleted some of the fonts and some files that appeared to be empty and one that couldn't be previewed. I thought I'll get rid of all these fonts and only use True Types BIG MISTAKE ! Now My X server wont boot. I did save the files I removed in /tmp/ but I don't know where to copy them back too? Can someone help me with this problem???
Ok I solved that delema you can't copy from the /tmp/ file only move from there.
I must still be missing some files because X still won't start
if someone with a RH 7.3 could send me your usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts file so I could look at it that would be great! :-)
Ok heres what happens, I boot it up and it says it can't run Xserver. Would I like to use Xconfugurator to set it up.. I say yes. After I run it it boots up x to the Gnome desktop then... I click thru a window that asks if I want x to boot on startup I say yes. then it says restarting x then Configuration file has been written. Take a look ar it before running startx. Note that the XF1186Config file must be in one of the directories searched by the server
(eg /ect/X11/XF86Config) in order to be used for further configuration, refer to /usr/XR11R6/lib/X11/doc/readme.config
I click OK
it says Now I will try to restart X
A few flashes and then
I cannot start the Xserver it is likely that it is not set up correctly would you like to view the x server output to diagnose the problem?
it just goes in this loop???
