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.

I just successfully installed Eterm but there is no Icon or application to click on the main menu, is that how its suppose to be? if so can I make an icon for it or something because I have to type Eterm on a terminal before I can use it. Thank you.
Originally posted by win32sux it would seem to me that the icon would be added automagically after installation if you're using the default desktop...
Most of the time, this is not the case.
Assuming that it's a package (RPM/deb/tgz, etc... I don't know your distro), you can't assume that the packager knows what DE/WM you're using. Even if shortcuts are created, it's mainly for the "big two" (KDE & Gnome).
However, learning to create your own shortcuts shouldn't be too bad now would it?
I used Eterm-0.9.2.tar.gz to install Eterm just the normal tar ./configure and make, and I use gnome 2.2.0, and i don't seem to find the Icon but as long as I can do the shortcut thats good enough for me, I know it might be simple but can you guys tell me how? Thanks.
