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 had been trying to get the drivers from ATI working for several months now. Recently I decided to give it another try. I did a fresh install of Debian Etch, only a base system. I am using the amd64 arch, but everything should work for the other archs as well. I did an apt-get install gnome xorg. That is all I had before I began following several guides until I got it working with the below steps. Also I did all this as root so you may need to install fakeroot or something along those lines.
I'm sorry, I was completely mistaken, I've got the Mobility Radeon 320M, sorry for the confusion. I'm really sorry to have led you on like that, but it was a complete accident, I'll edit my posts above to reflect that.
