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 am having some problems with my upgrade from redhat 7.3 to redhat 9.0. My monitor was not detected initially for using xwindows. So, gdm configured my monitor for me and now there is some type of memory problems where my monitor can not refresh fast enough and I get bits and pieces of gui's left over after starting programs or quickly moving gui windows with my mouse. So I tried my reliable 'Xconfigurator' program, but soon came to realize that redhat 9.0 does not have this program. I tried different adjustments with using the display gui, but I am still having problems.
I tried several things such as redhat-config-xfree86 and setup. The redhat-config-xfree86 was the same as the display tool in the gnome toolbar. I also tried added options to my XF86Config file that specifically tell X to use my old SDRAM. Now I am starting to wonder if I do not have enough video ram to handle this server? I haven't seen many people with this problem before.
sorry I have been away for awhile here is my cat /proc/meminfo
but I can not find my video RAM.

I reinstalled redhat 9 fresh to try and solve the problem (after backing up of course). This did fix some of the problem but the screen is still slow to refresh when moving windows. This was never a problem with the XFree86 version that came with RH 7.3.
