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.

Edit your xfree86conf file by hand. Add 1600x1200 in your preferred bit depth. Of course, follow the syntax already in there.
The command to configure X is NOT xorgconfig!! The command to configure X is dependent on the implementation of X11 that a platform is using!! Some people still use XFree (though I wouldn't know why). Additionally, different distributions have different manifestations of the configure script. For example, Gentoo has xorgconfig, xorgcfg, and `X -configure`.
Usually the way I figure out what the config script is is by doing a `locate conf | grep bin | grep x` and that should give you only (mostly) executable configure scripts.
I use xorgconfig function and set up new parameters. After reboot kde can't start becouse of wrong color deaph and it can't find suitable monitor.
Before i use xorgfunction i make an backup of xorgconfig file. But the problem is that i have graphical boot of slackware. So, i can't get into console to change the bad file with the right one.
After the system tell me the kde -xsistem will be permanently blocked i have an empty lines on which i can write but no command works.
