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 installed Mandriva 2006. Installation was smooth and at last after post installation's everything is configured except graphic interface. So I manually went in, Mine is Nvidia Geforce 2 integrated GPU. It was there selected, so I clicked next. the next screen displayed a very big list of which I recognised as all kind of monitors. In that I searched for my Samsung SyncMaster 753s but I couldn't find so I gave 750s which was the one I felt to be nearer to the number. But after that it asked for test and when I accepted A garbled screen appeared in that nothing is there to describe. I can only see the mouse pointer marked as cross(X) moving with my mouse wherever I place the pointer. No clicks have worked. I restarted my system and went for another boot same resulted(garbled screen) after full loading.I reinstalled five times with different monitors but The same happened. Only change I can witness is change of the pattern of the garble
Can any one help me in putting this right.
Motherboard: asus with geforce 2 integrated
