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.

intel845 g doesnot require a extra driver ,as XFree4.3 comes inbuilt with the driver for i845g,make sure that the proper modules are loaded ,the easy way to do that would be use vesa driver to start X windows,
(in the device section write vesa in driver line in the file /etc/X11/XF86Config)
now start X
and using the redhat config tool,use the proper driver
