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 recently installed my first debian, sarge. I had kept my home intact during this install, so all the previous configuration files were still present in my home dir. Since my favorite Windowmaker wasn't installed, I installed it using apt-get. But when I log into it, I find that everything is very messed up. None of my previous shortcuts seem to work. Even the standard "alt+tab" doesn't work properly.
The standard icons don't work. Clicking on one of these gives me the error
Could not execute command
And there is no /usr/X11R6/GNUstep directory present.
The biggest problem is that I can't find the configuration directory. I had one ~/.gnustep/library/windowmaker directory with mandrake 10.1. But this seems to have been deleted during installation. Do I need to create my own configuration directory?
I followed your advice and I installed guarddog as you explained in your thread 'Debian Post-Install Configuration'.
Now I have a firewll in function and I thank you for that but I have an error also.
Here are the thins:
I am runing Debian 3.1r1 with kernel 2.6.8-2-386, I installed the base system+GUI+Gnome. Everything is OK.
From time to time on bash terminal (not on GUI terminal) appear a message on my monitor like that:
Doesn't matter where I am (in what program or window) it just appear on my screen this text. The only thing that I observed that is changing is ID.
This message become to appear after I installed firewall guarddog.
I don't know what I have to do. It is embarassed that when you want to do something to appear that message like that.
It appear to the login screen, it appear when I work in Midnight Commander, it appear with a regalrity of 3 minutes.
Please tell me what I have to do to disable this message?
What I must to configure for that messege not appear in the future?
I followed your tips to install a firewall and I managed to install and configure guarddog as you explained in your thread 'Debian Post-Install Configuration'.
I have now a working firewall and I thank you for your advice but I have now an error also.
I have installed Debian 3.1r1 'sarge' with option linux26.

Doesn't matter where I am this messagfe simply appear on my monitor. It is embarassed to work with something and suddely appear that message. The only thing, I observed that is changing is ID on that message, the rest of it is the same. It appear with a freqvens of 3 minute (every 3 minute I have it on my screen).
What I have to do to disable this message?
