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.

Hey, I'm running Suse 9.1 and KDE 3.2 - if I try to load a website that has a TON of huge pictures on it and the machine freezes up (just about - mouse still moves, but choppy and nothing will work), is there something I can push to quit the process? I read about the command to type at the terminal, but it's faster to just hard restart then to wait for it to open.
one more thing. you can press ctrl alt and any F key from F2 to F6. then log in again as the same user. you can do it the command line way from there (use ps ax|grep 'prog name' for the PID number then kill PID). I would do this if you were doing something important. to go back type logout then press ctrl alt F7.

control+alt+escape brings up a little skull and crossbones in KDE. whatever window you click on will be killed. but don't click on the desktop background or on the kicker, because you will have a horribly confused machine that you will have to restart KDE on.

gmail is very picky about what browser you use. i can not use Opera either firefox works, IE works, but i have yet to find any other brower that does with gmail. its the #1 reason my gmail account currently sits unused.
