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 is my first post here,I am a student who have recently started working with linux(Fedora 4 to be specific).I am quite new to linux still, i did few days of research and googling but the stuff i found haven't been very helpfull so far.
I am working with some voice recognition software and would like to change a little what happens when kernel receives an interupt key press (alt tab)
I will simulate a keyboard alt tab key pressed event
which will be triggered by voice instead of actual key press.
My question is where would i find more inforation on what exactly happens when a key is pressed.
I would like to add numbers to the small box with tasks that pops up when alt tab is pressed and i would like it to pause awaiting another voice command from user (the command will be label number which in turn will switch to that task window).
So i would like to find out,understand and modify the code that is executed after the keyboard event "alt tab" is recognized and interupt handler forwards the alt tab command to execute the code to pop up the task window.
Or if what happens when you press alt tab cannot be modified would it be possible to add a system call to perform exactly what pressing alt tab does + my modification?
