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.

Have you recently used that monitor with that same video card and had it working properly? I say this because I had the same problem a while back when I hooked up my roommate's old monitor to his new box (which was running Windows XP(losion)) and the same thing you are describing happened. Fact of the matter was the monitor couldn't handle the refresh rates being pumped out by the high-end AGP video card. Had to replace the monitor.
