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.

3. Install Debian using netinst cd all this while.
Q. Any idea if Debian has a Live CD (KDE) that comes with an installation option?
The Debian web-site is large. Occasionally, finding things requires a little searching, but everything is there. Follow the links to "Debian Live Project." It has this quote;
"A Debian Live system is a Debian operating system that does not require a classical installer to use it. It comes on various media, including CD-ROM, USB sticks, or via netboot. Why Debian Live?
Although the Debian Live project is about the framework to create your own customized Live system, we offer some prebuilt images. Currently, builds for four desktop environments (GNOME, KDE, LXDE, and Xfce) as well as the standard system and for rescue purposes are available."
Hi, i love kde. In the normal install 1st dvd, it will by default use gnome with no obvious option to choose a different de. Here's how you do. Insert and load install dvd. When you're at the menu where you select install, graphical install, advance options, ect. Choose advance options, then choose alternative desktop environments, and then select the one you like, and it'll go back to the screen with install, ect and then just select install as normal, and it will install as normal but with your selected de instead of gnome.
After actually trying our all the options,
finally decided to give up the GUI idea and do it the not so GUI way:
- install Debian using netinst cd
- apt-get install xorg, kde-plasma-desktop and friends
- home partition manually setup using crypttab/luks
- aptitude in konsole for all installs and update
- update-notifier-common, installed just in case.
