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.

hmmm, i don't know what that is. does it have a lot of "Ks" around, with a taskbar on the bottom like windows, or does everything begin with "G" and there's a bar across the top like on a mac OS?
whichever one it is, you'll probably find some sort of control panel utility in the menus. just look for a "background" option. you might even be able to change it with the "fbsetbg /path/to/wallpaper.jpg" command (fbsetbg -h or man fbsetbg for options). you'd have to put that in a startup file somewhere though (.xinitrc, etc.) to get it to load every time with X.
First of all there are several ways to get a background. One way is with the Window Manager.
Under Amigo and Amigo-XP the default window manager is WindowMaker. The ROX-Filer can also display a background.
Right click on desktop(appearance) for the WindowMaker window manager settings. right-click on a ROX-filer window and choose options to set ROX-contolled settings.
You can just right click any desktop icon and select 'backdrop' which opens a little panel that you drag and drop the graphic onto, instantly changes the desktop background. Discovered this by accident, and figured backdrop ***might*** mean background.
