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 have NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8178-pkg1 drivers and i tried to install them on Slackware 10.2 with 2.4.31 kernel.I exit X and type sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8178-pkg1 wich runs the installation.Then it tell that there is no precompiled kernel interface and if i want it to download.I said no so it compiled new kernel interface and installed the drivers.After that it asked me if i want it to configure xorg file with nvidia-xorg (or something like that), wich i did.After trying to start X i see Nvidia logo and after that everything is BLACK!I tried to move my mouse and i get random green things on the screen after wath i have to restart my comp.
Oddly i've just posted something similar on another forum. If i use the 'nv' driver i can run X perfectly fine. If i run 'nvidia' i get a "Caught signal 11. Server aborted." error after the Nvidia logo flashes up.
i've tried running some of the earlier drivers (7174, 6629) but i get the same problem - could this be an issue with 10.2 and nvidia?
Geforce MX 4000 (AGP) here (against the default 2.4.31 kernel, Xorg 6.8.2). However, i've another SuSE partition where this driver works okay, the only difference being the 2.6.8 kernel. i even tried 'borrowing' the xorg.conf from that setup, though i had the same problem.
