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 am newbie, and have two problems installing RH 7.3 Linux:
- during install configured/ tested 1024x768 resolution - all Ok
- after restart no GUI, monitor (Sony Multiscan G420) reports input: 81.3 kHz/ 181Hz;
this input is beyond monitor's range (H: 30-110kHz, V:48-170Hz) which is configured and tested during initial install;
- trying different settings with Xconfigurator;
best got is 640x480, but this is not usable since only 1/4 of actual GUI screen is presented
- additional info:
all installed on Dell Latidude CPi notebook with Neomagic 128ZV/ZV+/XD (2160) 2MB video card;
in docking station same video card (i.e. Neomagic 2160/ 2MB)
- GUI in 16bit 1024x768 resolution is target
- is it the problem since basically OS can see 2 video cards (one in laptop in second in docking station?)
- suggestions/ tips?
- how to configure static IP address for NIC from BASH (due to problems with GUI/Xconfigurator "neat" is not an option)?
(since "ifconfig" is having no line/data for "inet addr: etc.")
- suggestions/ tips?
