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.

hello, i was just wondering if i could install KDE and GNOME at the same time in Red Hat? and if I do, could and how would I switch between desktop environments? i currently have GNOME on RH9 but i fell in love (hehe) with KWrite, so i was thinking if i could use the two desktop environments at the same time.
Distribution: K/Ubuntu 12.04/14.04, Scientific Linux 6.3/6.4, Android-x86, Pretty much all distros at one point...
Actually, It is somewhat possible to have them both running at the same time. For instance, if you run nautilus from KDE, without the proper command line switch, it will take over management of the desktop. Gnome apps can be run under KDE and vice versa...
If you xnest installed, you could login to KDE and then start a new session using GNOME in the same window (In KDE). I am not sure if this works ok for one user, so you may have to login to the second DE as another user.
