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.

Hi. I have two Nvidia Geforce4 cards, one AGP and one PCI. I used the Nvidia display utilities to enable Xinerama...which appeared to give me the type of display I needed. After implementing that, I attempted connecting to my Windows 2003 Terminal Server and got the following error...
slavojzizek@ashland1 ~]$ rdesktop -f 188.8.131.52
Autoselected keyboard map en-us
X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 78 (X_CreateColormap)
Value in failed request: 0x0
Serial number of failed request: 7
Current serial number in output stream: 8
I know this is probably one of the problem-areas, so this is my xorg.conf file:
# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings: version 1.0 (buildmeister@builder3) Thu Nov 9 17:56:12 PST 2006
As an addendum to my first question, one of my monitors which is a Sceptre Naga 19'' Widescreen...appears to have some "ghosting" issues that I never experienced when using it with WinXP. Any clues on that?
