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 know that I should be using Compiz Fusion, direct me to a working "how to" for an ATI R9550 rv350 video card and I may try to install it again. You would have to prove to me that it works. I'm from Missouri.
Anyhow for Beryl, I am trying to place a wallpaper on the Skydome. I havent been able to. so tell me what is the secret. I have see the popup that states the screen or the image has to be divisible by 2 ie. 1024,
2048, 4096, That is all the info I can get.if there is a manual for Beryl I would like to get it. I also would like to have the cube docked zoomed and allow gdesklets docked to the screen, any ideas on that would be appreciated. Thanks, Darrell
Thanks for the help. It narrowed down what I was looking for. and with a little more deduction. I figured it out. The skydome had to have a pic that was sized both ways /2 ie 1024x1024, 2048x2048, usw. The sticky windows Desktop/Desktop Cube/stick Sticky Windo.....s had to be checked and the desklets had to be configured to stay on top when the desklets are slide closed they dock to the cube. I've posted a screenshot on my website
I resized it to 800x600 just click on the thumbnail it will open in a popup (single Click). The only thing I have left is to dock the cube in Zoom as it is shown. I cheated, I used a 5 second delay on the screenshot. Anyway Thanks for the Help, Darrell
