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.

Hi, Thanks for your attention again. I am strugling to get fonts set up on my dell 700m in KDE SUSE 10. Iwas wondering if there was anyone who has a recommendation for me to get ALL the fonts appear a crisp as they do in WinXP on this 1280x800 widesecreen dpi 96 (i think).
Recommendations like what theme, font and size and icon size would best suit the screen. I am in KDE. What I also find is that GNOME apps lik GAIM, have huge fonts size (ugly ones as well). I also installed firefox 1.5, and that gave me hell to get the fonts set up in the menu (large size), so I downgraded back to 1.0.7.
I read somewhere that appa that use GTK fonts (whatevr that means)can be set using GTK2 Preferences ( ihave this under Utilities>Desktop>GTK2 Prefs), but when I set the fonts there and choose the theme, and save these settings (alerting me that the previous file will be replaced and that I have to restart apps to see the change), nothing happens.
