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 Fedora 9 (GNOME) on my laptop and I downloaded and install KDE Desktop, having installed KDE, I started seeing KDE applications in my menus but the problem is I don't seem to understand how to switch from Gnome to KDE. Could anyone please show me how.
The thing is, each time I type 'startkde &' it switches to KDE but I still see GNOME Panels i.e. top and bottom panels, and it's only for that session whenever I restart the machine it goes back to GNOME.
On the same screen as where you login - http://linuxscreenshots.org/screenshots/8/115/ - before you put in your password, click the Sessions (the word itself is a shortcut). When clicked, select the desktop you would like to use. Once you have closed the menu, login.
