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'm running Woody that I installed off my friends net-install CD. Running KDE 3.3.
The problem I'm having is with my mouse. Sometimes, when I single click, it acts like a double click. Most noticeably is when I click on an icon in my kicker and two versions pop up. It happens quite frequently. My default mouse is a MS optical Intellimouse. I've tried the following:
3 different mice: 2 MS optical intellimouse, one MS optical explorer (the one with 5 buttons), each in USB or PS/2.
Both KDE and Gnome.
In all the cases, the problem occurred, so I don't believe its a hardware problem, and I don't believe its a KDE problem, I'm guessing its an X problem. I was going to try installing Xorg, but i've read it's hard to do in Debian, so I figured I'd ask here first.
Does anyone have *any* ideas here? I can post any additional information if needed.
(edit: oh yeah, and I've had friends try and get the same results, so its not me accidently double-clicking. This doesnt happen in windows [been running linux for almost 2 weeks straight now, occasionally booting into windows])
