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 just installed the 4191 nvidia drivers and then typed xfree86setup. It totally changed my XF86Config file. And now when I Ctrl Alt + I get only two resolutions. 640 x 480 and some gigantic one! This is my XF86Config file that I've pasted below. Should I just copy stuff from one of the posts on the board? I was able to search and find the config for my whell mouse and I pasted that into my config file, but this screen setting didn't even resemble any that have been posted.
HorizSync 30.0 - 95.0 #check these numbers with your
VertRefresh 50.0 - 180.0 #monitor manual or check online
Modes "1024x768" #assuming, you plan on using 24 depth
Btw: The 2-dimensional graphic quality of nvidia-chipset based cards is crap You need the 'nvidia' driver only, if you need OpenGL-support. If not, stay on the 'nv' driver. They're more stable and open source than the 'nvidia' module.
