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 need to get videos to TV with full screen. My graphics card is GeForce 4 MX 440 and TV connected as clone with twinview. My primary display is 1280x960 and my TV is 1024x768 with 1280x1024 virtual display.
I'm using Debian sarge with 2.6.8-2 kernel and Xfree 188.8.131.52.
One way I think would work is to make TV show my whole screen at once by dropping some pixels off so 1280x960 screen will fit to 1024x768 (or smaller).
As video player I use mplayer, so one way would be resizing mplayer output window.
Problem is I don't know how to do neither of those.
I don't care much what way I get it working as long as I can get it even working somehow.
Using MEPIS, my card has the option for twinview and these things, but they always seem to screw it up, especially if I select TV as the other output. The nvidea 5500 card that I have (I think?) just automatically puts the screen output to the TV and so my TV looks like my screen; I just maximize my video on screen and its the same on my TV and there is no config to deal with.
