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.

Hello, I've got a Linux box (RedHat 8.0) and a PC and I bought one of those cheap KVM switches (Linxel or something). Problem is, once I boot into the X-window system of RedHat, I get a black screen and blurb about "video not supported" or something...
Are there drivers that I'd need to make this work? Or should I return the switch box and get something that works?
NO, I do not want to partition hard drives; I need two machines. Thanks.
Thanks, yes it works without the switch--I got the switch so I could free some desk space.
I did boot without switching--once it hit the XWindows system (it showed all the startup plain text), it went black with the message, so it knows the monitor is there, it just won't display anything when it hits XWindows
