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.

During my installation of ubuntu it asked me my max screen resolution. I chose the wrong one! thankfully it was lower than it actually is so it didn't break my screen. However now I can't make it go up any higher than i set in the installation. how do I change this?
i am having the same problem with my resolution, i have changed max res settings to what i want, but if i want my max settings to be "1280x1024" what do i change my HorizSync and VertRefresh to??? my graphices card is a nvidia 6800.
It will tell you what is happening. What may have happened is that the monitor is not responding adequately (e.g. dt wrong frequencies) and subsequently the card is finding its own way of displaying something - which is not the way you intended too,..
Anyway, start with the logs and come back with teh result :-)
I recently posted on this forum a xorg.conf file which worked well for me and to some other person too.
The title is:
"Intel 82845G Graphics Controller"
I also had the same problem but finally, after many changes on the config file I managed to get the resolution I wanted.
Hope the xorg I posted helps.
