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.

Okay, this has me scratching my head. I have Red Hat 9.0 installed, and I decided to put in Gnome as my only DE: I do not have KDE installed.
Everything is honkey dorey (well, not really, but it's nothing bad), except for the fact that on my Gnome Application menu (you know, the menu you get when you add the bar to the top of the screen) there is an entry named "KDE Menu". There are two sub-menus within: "System" -> "Screensavers". These menus were not there before, and do not appear in the "Red Hat" main menu.
I have a feeling that the Really Slick Screensavers RPM I downloaded from Guru Labs had something do with this because the "Screensavers" sub-sub-menu had all of the Really Slick Screensavers listed in it. However, I have since uninstalled the RPM from Guru Labs, but the "KDE Menu" remains. I don't know how to delete the bogus menu entry.
Has anyone else noticed this weird behaviour? Did the Really Slick Screensavers mess up my menu, or is something else at play here? I'm really confused. Any help would be appreciated.
Both Gnome and KDE keep their menus in the same place (I am not sure where). I discovered this by accident and now use the same application menu for both Gnome and KDE. It looks like some package installed a KDE menu in the common menu location. Enjoy.
