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 using Fedora Core 2 with KDE as my WM. I also load a Gnome welcome screen to log into. I've noticed that Gnome had an option to reboot, shutdown or simply log off. KDE only gives me the option (form the main menu, anyway) to quit session and return to the login screen. Is there a way to initiate the shutdown sequence from KDE? Thanks in advance!

That's just another setting ... have a look in the
kontrol panel, either System Administration or
Session Control ... my wife's machine asks her
when she logs out of KDE whether she wants
to log-out, restart or shutdown
you can cheat, open rvxt, then type
sudo /sbin/shutdown -h now
you can make a batch file, then an icon shortcut on your desktop, these are all hacks, but they work. In mandrake you have from the taskbar, system, configure, kde, login manager that allows you to set how it shutsdown and starts up i.e. autologin of a user straight to kde and shutdown from logout straight to powerdown
