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 upgraded to X11 6.8.1. In hindsight, maybe I shouldn't have.

I've lost my dual monitors.
Apparently my old (working) xorg.conf file will not work for some reason.
To clarify - Both monitors are working, but I can not get:

In rereading this again, I should clarify. After I upgraded I ran xorgconfig. All went well, and
then I 'started x'. GUI came up fine. I copied and pasted some sections of my old xorg.conf for my scroll mouse (which works fine now), and the dual monitors. But like I said, the Xinerama is not working.
I copied the xorg.conf file to a anather name, and just used my old xorg.conf file which worked fine in X11R6.7. I get a whole bunch of errors in regards to my keyboard, video card module, and "screens found, but not recognized" or something like that.
