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.

This would actually be either specific to your window manager/desktop evironment; or you can set it up in .Xsessions (which is a SUPER PAIN for most n00bs but can be done).
So, first off, what's your window manager? What "gui" do you use might be an easier thing to understan. If you still don't know what I am talking about, can you either host up a shot or email me a screenshot so I can post a link of your default background?
I'm handling with that tilde, but I don't know how to do it ... I used ALT GR + 126 but it don't work ... how to do it ? However I've also got a problem findind the source of the program .. I've got it in my START-like menu, but don't know his location ...
How do you login? When you login/out there should be an option to choose which one you are using assuming you don't simply "startx" from a command prompt.
Using your command line try:
If that exists, are there directories under it? Are there any files? I do believe a default install of RH is using Gnome though, the bluecurve thing (someone please correct me if I'm wrong, never ran RH 8 and never plan to). Anyway, see if there is a "help" option or something. ANYTHING. Also, look through your menu, do you see alot of "K" programs, things starting with the letter K?
Email me a screenshot or host one up, that might be the easiest way (at least that I can think of).
