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.

You may want to check for a line in /etc/lilo.conf like "vga = ask" (and remove it). If you're booting using the standard framebuffer console, are you sure your card can support 64k colours at 800*600 (what 788 specifies). Better to try vga = 771 (800*600 @ 256 cols.) or "vga = normal" for the most basic console.
If you follow p0f's recommendation, you will be taken to an X login prompt (which requires you have X11 installed and configured), not a console, nor an "auto-login". Just a warning.
