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 am trying to use DVDrip on mandrake 10. it all seems to work but the most important buttons (RIP!) are at the bottom of the window, off-screen, and DVDrip doesn't seem to allow me to minimize at all. Ergo I cannot rip!
A few years ago when I briefly tried Redhat I had trouble configuring X, and consequently kicker was hidden below the viewable screen area, but scrolling downwards with the mouse revealed the lower region. Is there any way of turning this function on in Mandrake? (ie the desktop had, for example, a 3000x2000 pixel space for my actual 1024x768 monitor, and scrlling with the mouse revealed the hidden space)
I would try Drip instead but it wants me to uninstall half of my apps (bloody Jasper incompatibilities), and life's too short...
Help would be much appreciated and the DVDrip site is down (protest against those evil patents - sure they'll happen in Mammon, but surely not Europe?!?!?!?!?!?!?!)
(I apologise in advance to any patriotic Americans for that last quip - my tongue was partially in cheek!)
