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 get some warnings and some deprecated things there
any clues how can i fix it
thanks Lenard i have read the wiki but following that i end up with the previous version of the driver (8.40.4)
My graphics card is an old radeon 9600pro and it works pretty well with the 8.40.4 driver but i was wondering if i can install the latest driver 8.42.3
no luck yet....
i think i have to wait until the next release or for someone to build an rpm .
