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 am new to Linux, so I still do things on Windows that I am clueless about on Linux, but I'm bored with XP's GUI. KDE is so much better and I would like to know if it is possible to install it on Windows XP.
I've gotten KDE running in Windows before (cygwin), but you can't use it as a shell replacement or anything (yet) because it has no way to honor Window's window management, task management, or alot of other things.
It's too complicated, wastes resources, and you can't handle Windows programs inside of it without using Wine on top of, which'll be even more complicated and waste more resources.
For now, stick with Linux, try another shell (my favourite is BBLean), or wait until a hack comes out. There might even be one, actually... wouldn't surprise me one bit, all sorts of crazy stuff is coming out all the time.
Hey, keep it neutral. There is no way to compile kde for windows natively, but if you wanted to you can find a patch for the uxtheme.dll file and then install a kde plastik theme --- it won't solve ur problem but its a step up...
