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 haven't actually changed hardware before using linux. So now I have Geforce 2 and I'm switching to GeForce 3 ... Does Slackware 8.1 find the new GPU in boot? Do I only need to edit the X conf to change the amount of memory in my GPU or do I need to do something else too?
As far as linux is considered it doesn't care about your display adapter at all. X however might... But if you are going from one NVidia card to another then you should be fine as they all use the same driver.
As far as the memory questions goes, you can just leave out that information in your X configuration, it isn't really neccesary with your setup.
