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.

could this be kind of a windowmanager bug or something cause i just tried mozilla with window maker (i'm currently using xfce) and it started with it's own settings and worked fine so far (no konqueror tough), anyways i'm starting to feel like 8.0 version is much more stable than his sucessor (well, in fact it is, isn't it ? ) i can't wait for the 9.0 , i'm having noises in the background , you know what i'm saying ? I regret i gave my slack 8.0 cd away (damn!!)
BTW nevermind get into my account and peep some cause i just made it for this purpose (always learning) if any.
I changed my XF86Config file :
# "1024x768" is also a conservative usable default resolution. If you
# have a better monitor, feel free to try resolutions such as
# "1152x864", "1280x1024", "1600x1200", and "1800x1400" (or whatever your card/monitor can produce)
because i just realised my "new" crapy monitor has max resolution of 1024x768 so maybe i pushed a litlle to far with 1152x864 and that could be messing things up , don't you agree ?
BTW (in /var/log/XFfree86.0.log )

what are this "Supported Future Video Modes" ? does this mean i couldn't have 1152x864 in vesa mode anyways ?
