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.

Running the new Kubuntu 6.06 distro. Trying to install Windows XP 96dpi fonts to improve my KDE Desktop display quality. Been trying to set up the xorg.conf file to give a 96dpi screen resolution. Below is a copy after the Kubuntu install program's automatic setup of the xorg.conf file. The monitor section looks quite bizarre to me. I tried deleting the modeline entries and entering "DisplaySize xxx xxx" (appropriate for the resolution I was running at - can't remember right now). That worked initially - 96dpi when entering "xpdyinfo | grep resol" ....... that is, until I used the display manager in KDE to change resolutions and then back to the one I was using. At that time the xorg.conf reverted back to the original (below), with all the old modelline entries (and my manually entered displaysize line disappeared). Screen resolution switched back to 75x75dpi. Any ideas how to set this xorg.conf up properly, so I can switch display resolutions while keeping a 96 dpi screen resolution in all display resolutions? I know I will probably need multiple displaysize lines, one for each resolution - but how do I keep the modeline entries from reappearing, and my displaysize lines from disappearing when I switch resolutions in KDE? Is this something new to KDE, or something specific to my monitor or video card, or ?????? Am using an ATI AIW Radeon 7500 with 19" Samsung SyncMaster 997DF. OS is Kubuntu 6.06 Dapper Released Version. Thanks in advance for any help.
