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.

Of course I have to have problems.. I have the exact same setup as u... 9600 on 9.2 and the driver sort of works.. but the video is all screwy, and i can't make anything out on the top half of the screen... as if there are lines of video missing or misplaced...
anyone have any ideas? I don't understand why it's so hard to get these ATI cards to work.. I mean so many people have them!
in following instructions in readme, i downloaded needed files to my home directory and then installed kernel-source, make, and gcc, but cannot locate them. when i do the kernel-source command to compile it, the response is "file/dir not found."
any idea where those files are or what i am doing wrong?
i followed that guide also, however - in sax2 it now says fglrx as my driver, yet the card it picks up is not a Radeon 9600, it is: RV350AQ, and it still says that 3D acceleration is unavailable for my card.... anyone else have that problem?
teh README for the ATI drivers explicitly states that you can't use SAX2
for setting up 3D acceleration. SAX2 will in most cases be not able to detect
whether your card supports 3D acceleration or not.
I have the same phenomenon, although 3D acceleration works perfectly.
