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 Mandrake 10.1 installed on my toshiba portege 3480CT.
i installed 2 of the 3 disks and worked out how to manually install the rest of the programs off disk 3 by right clicking on em and then click on Software installer.
However I just cannot get full screen of mandrake 10.1 on my laptop.
it has a black box around it.ie not full screen like i want it to be.
btw the video card is a savage 8mb on board one.
and it doesn't make it full screen when i change it by the task bar icon either.
thankyou i fidled with it till i got it working.
1600x1200 flat panel for monitor
and i had to change screen res to 1024x768 and 32 thousand colors (15 bits)
do i need an anti virus.i know mandrake has a firewall shorewall built in.
but every webpage i visit it keeps saying warning this page in unencypted.
btw my security is set to standard.
