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.

My PC boots fine but no booting text messages are seen during startup or shutdown [blank screen] although eventually the GUI starts fine and asks for a passwd etc. How can I get the bootup messages back?
I built a nice 20 GB Ubuntu CE (Christian Edition) [it is based on Ubuntu 7.04] and got it all configured just the way I wanted then...........
Next day it wouldn't boot at all, tryed lots of things. Gave up.
Decided to see if I could make it work in a second machine so took the HD out of the orig Dell GX150 box and put in a different Dell box (this a GX260]. Of course some of the hardware is different so............
Xorg didn't work at first, looked garish huge letter etc. Did Ctrl-ALt-F2 and logged into a text screen ran sudo Xorg -configure to have Xorg try to configure for the new video hardware. Next I copied the newly generated xorg.conf to /etc/X11/xorg.conf and rebooted fine (into the above described state). System uses Grub.
BTW, Sound , internet, is all good. What about the text messages?
Thanks in advance.
