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 running Debian 3 (2.4.18-bf2.4); I have Mozilla 1.0 running on resolution 800x600, depth 24. When I open "Preferences" it overlaps the whole screen and there's no way to get out except pressing "Esc." Also, when a small window opens (like when downloading), it extends beyond the right/leftmost of screen. I would assume that goes with windows opened by other applications (just apt-installed x-window-system, fluxbox, lynx and mozilla).
### BEGIN DEBCONF SECTION
# XF86Config-4 (XFree86 server configuration file) generated by dexconf, the
# Debian X Configuration tool, using values from the debconf database.
# Edit this file with caution, and see the XF86Config-4 manual page.
# (Type "man XF86Config-4" at the shell prompt.)
# If you want your changes to this file preserved by dexconf, only make changes
# before the "### BEGIN DEBCONF SECTION" line above, and/or after the
# "### END DEBCONF SECTION" line below.
# To change things within the debconf section, run the command:
# dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86
# as root. Also see "How do I add custom sections to a dexconf-generated
# XF86Config or XF86Config-4 file?" in /usr/share/doc/xfree86-common/FAQ.gz.
FontPath "unix/:7100" # local font server
# if the local font server has problems, we can fall back on these
If you hold Alt and click the mouse anywhere on a window you should be able to move it. Then you can get to an edge and resize the thing
If it doesnt remember the new workable size, which Moz should, try using your window manager's Save settings option
Proud: thanks for the help. However, even though I can move it by pressing Alt and moving mouse, the "Preferences" and and pop-up window isn't resizable; it doesn't has that small part on the right-belowmost corner of any window where you can press it with mouse and drag it to resize. The Mozilla window is just fine; it's resizable, what's killing me is the "Preferences" and any pop-up window.
