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.

when i run graphical and attempt a reboot or change in run-level my screen goes blank and hangs. Im not sure why this is. My system has a non-graphical login and i go into graphical with xinit. I'm not sure how to propetly kill x either. when i simply kill the process my screen goes blank and freezes.
i trie the cntl alt backspace and it klobberd x of couse but i was still left with a black screen and hung system.
as far as the configureation appsn there does not appear to be any configuration paramaters that would contribute to the inability to change run-levels after the cessation of x. I can't even get a command prompt when x is killed.
yes i checked out your config fancypipper. My sound card wont opperate with any of the s3 or savage drivers (xfree or 3rd party) other than vesa. Additionally im not sure where in the config file proper shutdown is configured. Unless of course this is a just a condition resulting from an unsupported driver/card config.
