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 couldnt really think of a good subject, thats the best i could do... sorry... anyways here is my problem... and what led up to it...
i am running slackware and winxp...
i booted up winxp to get the blue screen a few times and figured nothing of it because i only use it for my schools VPN... then i started up linux(kde 3.2) and everything was fine. later that day i started up linux again, and i logged it to a signal 11 set off by the little panel at the bottom of my computer in kde (forgot what it is called). i restarted and at the log in screen got a signal 11 for the image that shows up behind the logon box. now, i get no crashes, but the image does not show up behind the logon screen, and if i log onto kde, nothing will show up. now comes the weird part.... i can log on to fluxbox, then log off, and then the background image to the logon screen is back, and i can logon to kde just fine. how can i fix this...
the only thing that i have changed in the past week on kde was logging on to init level 4 or 5(i dont remember wich) instead of 3
this is a new laptop from IBM wich was formated when i first got it, and had a bios update when i first got it. i have no idea whats wrong with this... thanks
Check your home directory for some sort of KDE related file that shouldnt be there. I once had a problem where KDE wouldnt load after a crash i deleted the file in my home directory and it worked fine after that. I forgot what the file was called though.
