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.

The gameserver should not restart if you killed it (unless it has a parent process that is respawning it). Try using kill -9 "PID". Where PID is the Process ID. You can get it from top or ps (assuming you know how to do this).
Global Array Manager (called GAM hereafter) is a client/server application used to configure, Disk array system consisting of Fibre Channel Disk Array Unit. You may use following steps.
1)Stop GAM Server.
# /etc/rc.d/init.d/gam stop
2)Make sure that GAM Server processes are not existing.
# ps –ef | grep gam
3)If some GAM Server processes are still existing after the preceding command, kill them.
# kill –9 <process ID>
You are not being hacked. The gam_server is a legit, although buggy by the look of it, program. If you run KDE you need it because the kde libs are compiled against it. If you are not running KDE you might get away with killing it and renaming/mv'ing it.
