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.

that is correct, -4 kills regular, it has given me trouble many times. also do a seach for xf86config in the forum search, then you can see other peoples solutions,and some people even post complete files.
I have been working in linux for about 5 years now and I remember the first 2 weeks were the hardest, and xfree86 was the most difficult thing to et started, but now I wonder why it was because it is so excessivly easy when you get it.. but its like learnign to talk, you can't exactly be taught, but you do learn. then again I was recompiling my kernel before I got X working.
Well, I tried switching monitors and re-installed RH9 and it's still showing the same error.. if it's a video card problem, how can I find out? I already try different thinks for the monitor, but since I got this error,
(EE) RADEON (0): No Valid mode found for this DFP/LCD
(EE) Screen(s) found but none have usable configuration.
I think it might be the video card... How can I tell?
Thank pengPow, I've try what you said and it didn't work. could it be a problem with the Radeon driver? How do I install the driver from a windows XP partition? I have the driver but I don't know how to installed.. could that be the problem?
