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.

Ive recently configured fluxbox almost 100% to my prefrences, i just cant get transparency to work, when i click on any window/taskbar it has the option to change but when i set different values nothing changes. also in aterm i cannot set any transparency options, not sure if they are related or not.
For Fluxbox check your ~/.fluxbox/init
make sure everything is pointing to your /home and not something like /usr/share/fluxbox
What do you use to set the background?
Esetroot or feh work good
Are you using ~/.fluxbox/startup?
for aterm I use .Xdefaults
Cool desktop comprookie2000!!
I'm looking that status viewer that you have on your desktop, but I don't know how it is called.
I'm having trouble now with the windows border transparency. I remember that before I ever used composite I could use "transparency" from fluxbox to make transparent the borders of the windows and the menu, but now it simply wont work.
Could you please describe the software we can see in that pic?
The other problem I'm having now is that when I use xcompmgr the background turns black. =(
