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.

maybe there is someone over here to help me with the following problem. At home I have a (larger) monitor attached to my notebook. I use the monitors as clones not as individual desktops. By the way I am using Fedora Core 2 Test 3.
I installed MPlayer some days ago and it works quiet good, except from the following issue: when using "xv" as output device the MPlayer window is shown on each monitor but the content is only drawn to the "built in" notebook-display. I tried to use "x11" as output device and was very happy to see the video being cloned, too. Unfortunately the "fullscreen mode" does not work this way. When switching to full screen the video does not scale up (while everything around turns black).
I tried some other output devices like "gl" and "gl2" but performance is very poor with them, since I have no specific graphic drivers insalled (its a ATI 9000 mobility).
Any hints are very apreciated, cause I would love to see some of my movies and, yes, fullscreen would be nice, too.
Not sure what could be causing your problem, however I used to have multiple monitors set up using a nVidia card, but I had each monitor setup as its own destkop, I could watch a movie and play a game @ the same time, you could try that if you wish, here's a link to a linuxquestions.org discussion on it
