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.

Hi all..., I'm using gnome and can't find the way to create my own shortcuts...., all I can find are the default ones, but I'd like to have shortcuts to open some aplications..., like the terminal, mozilla, etc, etc...
Do you mean icon shortcuts on the task bar or the desktop? If on the bar - right click on the bar, select add to bar, pick launcher, select the application to make a shortcut for. If on the desktop - right click on the desktop, select add launcher, select the application.
If you mean keyboard shortcuts - First off here is a link to a nice chart of general keyboard shortcuts. [HERE]
To define your own keyboard shortcuts check out this article on using xev and the Gnome Configuration Editor to make your own. [HERE] The configuration editor may be located in different spots in your Gnome menu depending on the Gnome version and your distro. Check Applications->System Tools->Configuration editor.
ok, what I want are keyboard shortcuts..., I followed your link, but it didn't work, 'cause aparently, I didn't install "xev", so I went to rpmdrake (I have Mandrake 9.2), and I looked for that binary, but couldn't find it....
Well, thanks any way, but I did it without it...., I just had to install gnome-conf, and then I did what that page you gave me the link says....., but instead of using the xev to get the keyboard mapping, I just use the names of the keys..., like "<control>x " to get a new terminal..., etc...
