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 Red Hat 7.0 on to my computer, Once I got it installed It locked up when I tried to change the screen resolution. I used X configurator. It also locks up when you try to change the background. I reinstalled it again but then locks up during installation, it will give me message that it can't load a particular component. I know that there is nothing wrong with my PC because when I
installed Win 98 everything work fine, with everything configured.
Here is my hardware list:
MB I-430tx(not very sure)
CPU: AMD K-6 233 w/ mmx
48 megs RAM, a combination of 32megs DIMM and 16megs SIMM
HD: Seagate 8.5gb.
Video Voodoo 3 pci w/ 16megs of memory.
Generic 16 bit sound card (sound blaster compitible)ISA
HSP 56K micromodem (it says PCTEL on the chip)PCI
Linksys 10/100 PCI I think the model# is LNT or LNE100(it said on the box
that is has been tested w/linux, it even came with linux drivers. When you
try to install the drivers it will give you a message missing module
I removed all the hardware. Once Linux is up and running I put back the components one by one. Still no dice. Thank you for anyone who can help.
It sounds like a problem with your video card, but the voodoo is quite well supported. What is the distro you are using? You may require an update ot Xfree86 (which controls the use of X) so that it supports better your card. Can you install Linx so that you only have a command line when you boot, so don't configure your graphics, and then try to correct the problem manually.
