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'm currently using LCD monitor and i'm desperate for ClearType like technology for linux. Where can i find one? When i use AA feature on my Mandrake, the setting dosn't save for somereason. Dosn't make much differnt either.
Is there software download that lets me use ClearType technology in linux?
I should have mentioned, I am using Firebird... Where is this XFT setting? AHH! that bitstream made the fonts even worst. In mozilla it gives me the choice to all of the Bitstream fonts, but in firebird i only get 3 with wierd names like 'terminal' iso-xxxx. They all look horrible.
I installed using Mandrake installer for fotns, but seems firebird isn't reconizeing them.
Does this look good on your screen? I could seriously use some AA in this fonts, LCD monitor makes these text so skinny.
Microsoft propaganda or not, XP text looks SO much richer and better with ClearType. Why wasn't any Linux Distro fully adapt ClearType fully yet? I heard Microsoft dosn't own this technology, it was invted long before and is still the public's ownership.
Like i said before, AA in KDE dosn't save! I don't know why!
Anyone here know how to make website text be bold by default? Firebird nor any other browser has this feature. If i can set my browser to display all fonts as bold, i will be so happy. My eyes are killing me right now!
I think the only reason I don't like any Linux distros is because of (what I consider) poor font rendering. I just love how crisp text looks on Windoze with ClearType enabled. I also don't like Linux's software management system, as it is not good for somebody without a fast net connection...and finding all package dependencies is just a pain.
