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 just got a nice new ATI AGP graphics card, an Xpert 2000 tv-out incase you didn't guess, and i can't for the life of me get the git to work properly under redhat71 or mandrake8. I got Mandrake through the post this morning and am trying to get it all set up... bit too sparkly i think.. but anyway. So the problem is that the Xpert 2000 isn't listed in the card database, and simply installing it as a Rage Fury or such like (I've tried EVERY single one!) has not got me anywhere. the Mandrake installation has just set it down as a standard VGA adapter and i can't change the resolution from 800x600 to something sensible for a 17" monitor, as it deletes all higher modes. These modes get deleted apparently because the frequency is too high. Is this wrt the monitor or card, cos My monitor is correctly configured (or rtather the right driver exists.. wether it works well or not.. iiyama 8617E i think.
so yeah.. that's my problem in a fairly drawn out nutshell.
