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.

Distribution: Windows XP. I gave up with Linux & I left LQ.
Run Level 3
I need to install drivers for my nvidia card. I can't do it unless I am running the system in run level 3. Problems is the boot menu(lilo) only gives me the option for run level 1 and 5 not three. What do I need to do so it boots in run level 3. Mandrake 10.1 Official and KDE.
Next time you need to temporarily change runlevels e.g. to install Nvidia drivers just type "init 3" in a console as root. Once you have finished, to get back into runlevel 5 just do "init 5" as root. No need to edit anything.
