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.

What I would like to do is use a set of keystrokes, or a single keystroke, or a (Hotkey?) to get Gnome terminal up and running, instead of using the mouse button.
Is there any way I can do that while I am in the KDE environment.?
Then what you do is use menu editor (which is linked to in the Command Shortcuts tab of Keyboard Shortcuts as outlined above) and add it with menu editor to your menu. Granted their may be any easier way to do this, but this is the way I know. You of course have to know the name of the actual application (gterm or whatever it may be) to add it to the menu... then you can add the shortcut.
Menu editor may also be found in the Settings menu of your Kmenu
I havent upgraded as I am in the country with a dialup connection. To be honest I work on the principal that if it isn't broken don't fix it. I may just have to give it some serious thought here as to up grading.
Thanks again though for your time.
Yes thank you I found 'KDE Menu Editor', I am not sure what I am looking for though. Then how i would go about changing or adding that which I am trying to do. Please forgive my ignorance, this is still quite new to me, as I am not able to put as much time into it as i would like.
