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.

Well, I have a Dell Inspiron 8000 with a 15" LCD capable of 1600x1200x32, so it _is_ compatible. I have used this mode in Windows for 2 years, but I have not got it working in Linux. Do you know why it is not possible in Linux or how I can get it working? BTW, I am using 24 bit right now.
Hm. Can't get the logic in that though.. Well, it is just bothering me and I would really like to get an answer to this. Nobody really seems to have a clue if you look through old posts on LQ. Someone please explain!
And basically, slacken. 320mb's very appropriate post of those articles indicates why nobody on linux questions probably has or uses 32bit color... Its exactly 100% identical in viewing as 24bit and only adds the transparancy effects. So it was probably never a priority. I know the official nvidia drivers seem to go only to 24, but I do recall having a system set to 32 without them, but what would be the point...
