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'm running Fedora Core 1, just so you know. I was looking at some nifty Fluxbox screenshots and decided to try it out for myself. After downloading and installing Fluxbox on my system, I used the updated Switchdesk and to switch over to FB, then restarted X and was greeted with a big lockup. Naturally that didn't work for me, so I gave it the old control-alt-backspace, hit the "Session" button, and switched myself back to Gnome.
I tried it again with the same results.
After that, I got rid of Fluxbox and downloaded it again, this time using Synaptic / Apt-get instead of downloading it from my browser. Fluxbox still shows up on Gnome's switchdesk, but when I restart X it just throws me into Gnome no matter what. The "session" button doesn't even display Fluxbox as an option.
What I basically want to know is how can I get Fluxbox working now that I've gone through all this?
