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 trying to install Icepack linux right now, but I also tried Debian. As far as I can tell, these releases are both picking up my AGP eVGA Geforce 3 Ti 500 as a PCI card, which it's not. The install then fails. I have tried specifiying the correct drivers, and tried using the generic driver that is supposed to work with 99% of all video cards. No go. What do I do?
Well, I had a later version of Icepack which came with 4.0.2, and went back to an earlier version, and I don't know what kind of X that has... Neither of them work. One guy on [H]ard Forum told me I needed to use the Geforce 3 kernel on the Nvidia website... How would I do that?
Alrighty, I got slack and I have a command line now. But Windows is bull, and it won't let me use rawrite to get Geforce drivers to slack. Are there generic drivers for Nvidia in X, that I can tell it to use?
w00t, this is almost working, I am writing this from linux now!! But, I have a problem. My screen is HUGE! I mean giant. My desktop covers more than the whole screen and I have to move it around with my mouse. I'm not sure how I managed this... The only thing I wasn't sure I set right was my monitor horizontal and vertical syncs... HOw do I fix this? I can't tell if the resolution is right or not or find a place to change it...
