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 have almost everything working fine since install yesterday...
except when i get a gui screen, the screen appears to be moved to the right a bit... without switching my monitor controls to the left how do i switch it to the right to have it looking correct?
please none of this "your monitor is on its side" nonsense...
Is there a program I can use that moves the screen over automaticaly? I noticed with win98 I had a utility that came with my video card that would do that for me... even though I noticed that Linux never asks for driver disks and seems to have the necessary drivers preloaded (which i think is the way it should be)...
At any rate... no doubt you will tell me to edit the configuration file as "that is the best way to learn"... at the same time I do not want to wreck the file because if im not mistaken i think it could mess up my gui... is there an efficient way to go about it? maybe a decnet site that tells you how it should be done?
i tried pulling up xvidtune and i couldnt...then tried as root and was able to... looks like a very old program! anyways...i was successful in moving over the screen to the left...however, when i rebooted later the screen went back over to the right...how do i keep in its correct place all the time?
especially with Mandrake geared towards autoconfiguration. There might be something overwriting your (is it called HardDrake or something close to that?) settings. I have the same problem sometimes dealing the all the various configs in SuSE.
I don't have a particular answer but that might be somewhere to start.
