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.

X is a server like almost everything in Linux, you may use it to connect from other computer. If you don't want other external client to use it, you should close the port (every open port can be considered as a potential security hole).
Xdm/Gdm/Kdm are the GUI login screen. Instead of login in text mode, you get a nice useless graphical login...
how can i do a x terminal? what is x terminal means for?
if let say i want to make a connection such that machine b is logging on to machine a. then, from machine b, how can i get a graphical windows manager from machine a, then, i do a administration of machine a from machine b? can i do this??? just go through port 6000??? pls advice??
by terminal, I mean "a client computer without X that will connect on a server one serving X".
I never tried a X server, but you should be able to manage the "a" machine from the "b" machine as long the "b" machine will log in X as root account, of course.
