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 was just wondering how I might edit the right-click menu in XFCE on Fedora Core 3. I have tried other distros and they all seem to have a button that can launch a graphical app to do this (Under desktop settings and button says "Edit Desktop Menu", but Fedora seems to be missing this (more likely, it's there and I just I can't find it).
in earlier versions, you can just edit the /xfce4/etc/xfce4/menu.xml file. not sure where it is in fedora, arch puts the xfce4 directories in /opt. with 4.2 you can get icons on the menu though, so if you can upgrade, it's worth it.
I have FC3 and downloaded a bz2 with rpms for xfce 188.8.131.52 and tried the command suggested:
rpm -ivh --nosignature *.rpm
I got alot of "conflict messages" e.g.: file /usr/lib/libxfce4util.so.1 from install of libxfce4util-4.2.1-1 conflicts with file from package libxfce4util-4.0.6-1
file /usr/bin/xfce-mcs-manager from install of xfce-mcs-manager-4.2.1-1 conflicts with file from package xfce-mcs-manager-4.0.6-2
file /usr/bin/xfce-setting-show from install of xfce-mcs-manager-4.2.1-1 conflicts with file from package xfce-mcs-manager-4.0.6-2
file /usr/share/xfce4/doc/C/images/settings_manager.png from install of xfce-mcs-manager-4.2.1-1 conflicts with file from package xfce-mcs-manager-4.0.6-2
Any suggestions as to what I can do to resolve this? I normally use the Red Hat / Fedora graphical system update tool and/or yum but xfce 184.108.40.206 has not shownn up for either yet (unless soembody could point me to a yum repo with a packgs for xfce 220.127.116.11). Any help would be much appreciated.
