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.

How did I get here (at kubuntu)? Well, I'd been happily using Mandriva 2006 - fully upgraded with the Thac/Ze packages to be able to benefit from their kde 3.5.2 packages, when I started reading stuff...
Well, today I've been hovering over my system as I've noticed that there have been new RPMs made available for KDE 3.5.2 (for mandriva 2006) during the last couple of days. You'll have to search over at mandrivausers.org for links to the repositories.
It was a relatively painless experience. Just a case of running the software manager, going to the section where you configure where you want to download packages from, hitting the "add custom" button, pasting the repository...
