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.

Ubuntu is strange and Kubuntu is even stranger. If you want less trouble try that pclinux.iso of yours. It'll be worth that.
To solve your gmail problem, post us which browser are you using. This is an important info, since not all browsers display the same page in the same way.
The second thing we need to to know, is what resolution are you using in Windows and in Linux. Different resolutions can cause such problems I think.
I am using Firefox 22.214.171.124 for Linux-based distros.
Everything else looks OK...Firefox browser.....Kubuntu desktop and all else....just that the screen for the GMail is spread all over the place...not that I cannot see it all without scrolling...but it even has a Pg 2 part to it when the e-mail is longer than can be displayed on the one screen.
Ain't that weird?
Resolution is 1024 x 768, which is pretty normal for a CRT.
tar xcvf file
it just takes one line, I hit enter to get to the next line and it disappears....do I do this one line at a time, on one line separated with commas, hyphens, underscores or what?
If I just click I get something called konquerer..is that what I want?
I tried a command line, one line at a time but it does nothing....
