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've just installed feisty on my pc which has an nvidia 7900GS card.
When I first loaded ubuntu live from the cd i could only see the top half of the screen twice!!!(same thing up and down). Anyway, I installed and X wouldn't start. following advise found on the internet i did sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx nvidia-kernel-common and then sudo nvidia-glx-config enable. X started but the whole screen is blury (as if I suddenly need glasses), there are white lines over the menu bar as if i have a tv with not a good signal and the opion "enable desktop effects" on system-preferences all it does is to make my boarders disappear.
