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.

Originally posted by Noerr Sfin: I'm not big time gui user, but I've used gnome, kde and you probably have also experienced programs droping segmentation faults ..
Just two days ago, when I renewed my web server with rh73, I played around a little with kde3 and installed opera, and it took 10 mins to stale kde, and I wasn't even able to kill it from console, so I logged in from windoze to ssh and kill proccesses
My kde's working stable. But I'm thinking about upgrade to 3.0.x. Hmm. In Linux you can always log in by ssh. It's a very good thing. But I don't use it. It's just a matter of configuration.
it may be different in other distros, but in redhat you can not claim that system is totaly flawless in gui, especially when you put in lots of load. And I also hardly beleive that none of you has experienced any problems with gui programs in other distros like suse or debian
I use debian and is very seldomly in the gui - only thing I ever really use it for is for running netscape. I normally run in runlevel 2 and has set up runlevels 3 and 4 for the server modes I'm in (either busy with web development or with mail configurations). Runlevel 5 is as expected (gui!). Then on my server I don't even have X installed and I run a combination of my desktop runlevel 3+4 as runlevel 2 - only level ever used, don't have physical access to it - locked in a safe with the network cable sticking out - try that with an NT server.
