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.

For long time I could not run tuxracer as we dont have 'hardware accelerators'. But sometime back after little 'Googl-ing' I added the line
in the file /etc/X11/XF86Config tux racer was really fast.
We run SuSE 8.0 in a Dual Athlon (tyan motherboard)
Weeks later once X -server froze and I killed X server. I was unable to login (as kde stopped as soon as 'initializing system services') then I found that ~/.kde had got corrupted. Hence I deleted it. Still I could not login. hence I deleted .Xdefaults, .xsession-errors, .ICEauthority in my home directory.
Also I removed /tmp/kde-rose, /tmp/ksocket-rose
(rose is user name)
Now I am able to login but tuxracer is very slow (as slow as it was before adding the line >> load "dri" )
(I have checked ~/.tuxracer/options and it is fine. also fine is tuxracer files)
Is there anything I had done too foolish... and to get new life for my tux?
I have pasted the /etc/X11/XF86Config file below for info.
