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 installed Fedora Core 5 on my computer, everything is running fine.
The problem comes when I setup xdm and gdm so that I can use X-WIN to access Fedora Core 5 from Windows XP. Everything runs very very slow, it is much slower than the connection that I have to another system running Fedora Core 2.
I believe this is caused by Fedora Core 5's look and feel. Is there anyway to optimise the speed. Please help.
I'm running X-WIN32.
I have 2 Linux systems, one is FC2 and another one is FC5. The speed is much faster when I Xwin to FC2. I checked the network activities, everytime I put in username and password, it sent at least 2 MB of traffic.
How did you configure your FC5 to enable XWIN access?
Through one of the gnome control centre applets, I can't remember its name off the top of my head, but it's in there with logon options and that sort of thing. There's a tab for XDMCP and to configure what the remote greeter looks like (face browser/plain/same as local etc). I can check when I go home tonight if you want the exact details.
