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.

My trusty old CRT fried on me last night, went out and got a new MAG 15" TFT. Works fine on Win2k, but when I boot up RedHat 9, it boots as normal, then blanks when gnome comes up and the monitor's internal software tells me the refresh rate (53.3 Hz or something close to that) is not supported. I am unable at this point to use the monitor's onscreen adjustments to change the refresh/resolution. Can I fix this from the command line?
Yes, I tried redhat-config-xfree86. It dumps me to a terminal that my monitor cannot display, just like before with X. I can return to the other terminal as normal but there is nothing doing there, and I have to restart. Any other suggestions?
Tried all of the above, either not on my system or unable to run. If I go to /etc/X11/, I find XF86Config, but I get a "command not found" if I try to run it. All of the other tools do not seem to be present in RH9. (I even looked in /usr/X11R6/bin/ ). I can't see why redhat-config-xfree86 needs to run in X, but that's what it seems to be doing.
