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.

it's to many times I'm trying all the way to setup my new GPU by NVIDIA, a Geforce 9500 GT but with no success, so I decided to ask for your help
is there anyone able to tell me how to do in my case? (which is the right driver and how to install it)
now I've installed:
Kernel - "Non-free Linux 2.6.24 modules on x86/x86_64"
binary drivers: "nvidia-glx-new"
but if I check the "restricted driver manager" it's empy, while with my old configuration, with a old nvidia geforce 4, there was a "nvidia" driver set as "in use".
if it could be usefull, I paste my" xorg.conf":
# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
