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.

Hi, I use GNOME as my desktop environment and prefer it over KDE. However, there are some apps whiich require KDE to run (k3b, rosegarden). I'm running gentoo at the moment and only have gnome installed. When I was running MDK I had gnome and kde installed and i could choose between either environment at start up and any KDE apps could be opened within GNOME. What are the minimum elements of KDE that I need to install to be able to run KDE apps within GNOME. I don't want to ever boot into KDE so surely there is a large portion of the KDE files I can avoid installing. If anyone could help me out I would very much appreciate it. The main app I'm trying to run in GNOME is Rosegarden. I can provide a list of KDE elements so if someone could tell me what are the vital ones for running kde apps within GNOME.
