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.

ok I've started using Linux ubuntu since yesterday and I would like to know if there is any way to make each desktop's taskbar independant.....by this I mean that 4 example if Im using firefox in one desktop I dont want it to appear in another desktop's taskbar....is it possible??
Have you installed Ubuntu 7.10? Could you check the the version of the gnome panel: right click the panel -> 'about panel' It should say 2.20.1
The default behavior of this gnome version should already be like you want it.
yes its 2.20.1 but it seems like I maybe changed something and thats why this happened....but I dont know what I did....but the thing is if I was able to turn it on....Im supposed to be able to turn it off right?
There is a way to play with this setting. Are you using the Compiz cube by chance? That is what I was having issues with. I had to play with compiz-config to tell it to show 4 workspaces, instead of one, I believe. I had to do some searching myself to figure it out. If this still isn't solved when I get to my home computer, I'll post more.
