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.

k, i'm a newbie and tried the howto from linuxloader. I did everything it said and the system crashes when it boots into Xwindows.
My XFConfig file is more or less the same as the one posted at the begining of this thread and the errors of "no screens found" are also exactly the same. I have tried changing the resolution settings in XF86 Config-4 as suggested but it just produces different junk on the screen when i tpe startx.
Is there anything I am missing or should do other than runnning the install under SU and then editiing XF86Config-4 with nvidia instead of nv? I cant even startx when after restoring the old version of XFConfig!
Does it matter where i install and run the Nvidia install script? I currently have it in /home/My Downloads and ran it from there.
IS there any way of uninstalling the driver and getting the system back to normal in txt mode if it comes to it?
