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 see from the your previous posts that the ones that claim to have the same problem have one thing in common, an Athlon processor.
The ones that claimed to have no problem did not post their processor type.
I have a Pentium4 with a geforce 2 card and the 4191 drivers and had no problems with 2d or 3d. I was running RedHat though. I say "was running", cause a Windows XP install demolished my partition table this weekend. #*$&^&@#$#$ Bill Gates anyway!!!
I have had X crash on me in KDE as well as Gnome. Occasionally, I get some buffer corruption (I start seeing bits of the task bar appear in other parts of the desktop...)
This is the 2nd time I have installed 4191 with the same results.
I can say with a fair degree of certainty that I have completely uninstalled all earlier versions of the drivers. Not unly did I rpm -e, but I also inspected that ALL .so's were removed (I had to manually delete 1).
Distribution: Debian and Gentoo (likely to change soon)
I've just installed the 4191 drivers for my GeForce 4 Ti 4200 two days ago and everything seems to be working well. No random sluggishness or anything like that, but I am running Fluxbox. I do not have KDE or Gnome installed and installing them would take a few hours with Portage, so someone else will have to try this.
Hardware is an Athlon T-bird 1200mhz and the GeForce mentioned before. Distro is Gentoo (I just finished the installation yesterday, everything is current). XFree86 version 4.2.1 and Fluxbox 0.1.14.
