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've found another who can explain my problem better in his words, but I'm afraid he hasn't got an answer for the problem yet, so I'm hoping one of you does have an answer for me:
"In the meantime, I'm enclosing some screen dumps relating to the TV card
which might help someone suggest what further steps I can take. The
screen dumps include 2 snippets from dmesg and 1 each from my attepts to
run the two main TV apps for Linux (kwintv and xawtv).
I've a strong feeling that the TV problem is related to the size,
addressing, or operation of my video frame buffer, i.e. the TV apps are
not synch'ing properly with X.
My reasons for guessing this are as follows:
1. Before I recently upgraded my distro (to SuSE 7.0) and, hence, X
server to XFree86 v4, I had perfect pictures, but no sound or radio.
2. Now I have sound and radio, but can only get a picture via a single
3. The tuner is perfectly capable of locating TV stations (that's how I
know the sound is OK).
In other words, all TV and Radio functions have worked at some time, but
My tv-card is the pinnacle pctv (or miro), and I have redhat 7.2 installed. Several people checked out my modules.conf and haven't been able to pick out an error there.
For those interested in the performance of my videocard; my nvidia geforce 2 mx works perfectly playing my dvd in mplayer.
