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.

OK - had a problem, so I replaced everything, box, PS, Mobo,
HD, Memory, even the keyboard and mouse - everything - and
naturally, loaded in Mandrake 10.1 into the new box....
512 MB Ram
100 Gig HD
Format the HD....
Suck Cess - sort of....
When it came up the first time, I had lost control over the mouse,
altho, the icon was on the desktop....
Lost access to everything, files, folders, taskbar - even the shut-down link....
Tried several times to reload, but the results was the same....
Got tired of it, so I wiped the HD, and did yet another full install....
Got almost everything back, even the mouse....
But - I have no taskbar feature - it's just not there at all....
Anybody ever have that happen to them too ??
The only thing I deleted from the install was KDE (I prefer Gnome), K3B and Open Office....
Device Manager, folders, log-in, start page - they all check out
just fine - I just can't bring up anything from the missing taskbar
(like shutdown, an App, the control panel, sound options,
burn a CD - I can't even shut off the screen saver....)
I can't find anything about it, or how to fix it - anybody got a solution
or a reference to a how-to, or [u]something[u] ??
I swear, I'm ready to push this thing in a bush and shoot it....
