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 have recently installed Fedora 9 on my laptop. While Installing , I keenly selected ALL PACKAGES and ALL OPTIONS in packages. I also Installed GNOME , KDE and XFCE.
But when I boot , it doesn't prompt me to choose Desktop for GNOME or KDE or XfCe on login screen. It directly boots into GNOME only. Anybody knows , how can I use KDE or XFCE without reinstalling Fedora?? (as KDE and XFCE and necessary packages are already installed.) Which file i need to modify so that it will prompt me to choose Desktops on login screen????
I can't recall exactly where the option is, but are you saying that you do know where to switch window managers and the kde/xfce options aren't there, or you can't see where to select which window manager to use?
thnx for quick reply...
here I don't know how to switch desktops...also one of my friend installed same fedora 9 with same options , but he can see OPTIONS to Choose desktop on his login screen. But I can't see it on my login screen.
I guess there must be some file which I can modify so that these options will appear. BUT I DONT KNOW WHICH FILE TO MODIFY
can you help ?
