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'm finding that I cannot connect cleanly to KDE shared desktops. I'm wondering if anyone else has had these same problems.
I am connecting to this remote KDE shared desktop (using the built-in desktop sharing feature - krfb, I think) from a Windows workstation. I have tried using various VNC viewers, and with limited success.
I have had this same problem with different KDE installations from different Windows workstations. In other words, the problem is beyond one client and one server.
I have tried TightVNC's viewer, and it refuses to connect. RealVNC's viewer gives me the password prompt, but it hangs when it tries to view. UltraVNC viewer works only half the time, but rarely works when I am not on the local subnet. Often, when I do see the remote desktop, I can see the screen saver, but when I click or press keys (to get the "unlock dialog box" to appear), it doesn't appear to do any thing.
Is this common, and if so, what can I do to get around it?
