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 just upgraded from FC4 to FC5 and all went reasonably well except there's what appears to be a new feature (gnome only?) that's driving me bonkers and I haven't been able to figure out how to disable it.
When an application other than the one with the focus has some sort of status change a window "icon" entry is placed in the gnome panel in the workspace I'm in and it flashes until I either click on it or otherwise go to the workspace for the window and give it focus. This behavior is like a throbbing headache and is quite disruptive for something like gaim that has constant status changes with buddy's coming and going. Note that this behavior is not isolated to gaim - it's just the most obvious.
Any ideas how I can alter this behavior (disabling is preferred).
Thanks for the info, that's good to know as I wasn't aware that was there. Unfortunately the 'Visual system beep' was already unchecked so that's not the problem. Just to be sure though I checked it, saved, and unchecked it again. All to no avail.
