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 used to have VL 3.2 sharing this machine with Windows 95 (!) but the networking was somewhat dodgy, worked on good days but stopped regularly. So I upgraded to 4.3 yesterday. Slow install, but all worked well, set up PCMCIA services and network now comes up correctly on boot (using DHCP too).
Now the bad news: typing "startx" at the prompt results in nothing except the following message:
"xauth: error while loading shared libraries: libXmuu.so.1: cannot open shared object file: no such file or directory".
To me this looks like xfree didn't install correctly, so I'd appreciate hints on how to fix the system or suggestions for what I did wrong during installation the first time.
i don't know if this is actually the answer or not... Because I am running VL4.3 on both my old Toshiba Satellite 315 CDT (P200MMX, 32MB, 2.1GB, PCMCIA NIC) and my HP Pavilion ze5270 (P4 2.4GHz, 512MB DDR, 40GB, onboard +Wi-Fi) and it's running great...
But after you log in as root... try to an "XFree86 -configure" and let it write it's own XF86Config file... XFree 4.x and up do a good job at it... The file will be placed in /root/XF86Config.new and it will tell you to test it by using "XFree86 -xf86config /root/XF86Config.new" if you get the X cursor then you can copy it over to /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 and you should be good to go...
yeah, that's what happened to my old notebook, too. after installation, no gui loadable.
do XF86Config as suggested. within the config tool, take care for screen value and monitor value. you have to adjust these two resolutions, but not necessarily with the same values. so 1024x768 doesn't have to be the right value for both options. some will work, some won't.
it's trial & error, but be careful with it and don't damage your system. there should exist a compatibility list that shows you the right values.
Well Soho 5 rc1 (recent 1 just updated) works fine but I have to choose 16 color depth , then I have to edit my xconfig so my mouse scroll could work and add IMPS/2 to driver (mouse0) and add Enable Buttons "5"
stuff like that

RC2 (released last night) fixes both those issues, as well as others. I suggest looking at upgrading.
