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.

to pop up the Red Hat menu? I've gotten accustomed to using it for the Start menu in Windows (yes, you heard right, Windows!) and I hate having to move the mouse all the way over to the red hat in Linux?
Well I figured it out in slack, although as I'm typing this it seemed to change my font, or maybe it's my imagination(it's easy enough to change anyways)
In the kde control center go to Keyboard Layout and change the layout to your keyboard if there is a specific one for your keyboard, otherwise you're using a 104 key layout. in the options tab you need to change the combo box for third level choosers to 'press any of the win keys to choose 3rd level.) and apply and you should have a kde menu pop up when you press a win key....I kinda wish it would pop up in the corner though, It messes me up to have it in a random place like that.
I made a mistake. In order for the key to work (the way I got it to work at least) you must do what I said and then go to the keyboard shortcuts section and scroll to popup launch menu and click on it and then click on the button at the bottom that says the current key shortcut and press the win key you will use. I only use one so it works out for me. There must be a better way
and in slack it always shows up in the middle....I think in mandrake it shows up wherever. I would go and check it out but I hate using mandrake, especially since it's going to die tonight
I have this problem with every modern distro on every one of my computers, destkop and laptop, and I just found a real fast way to fix it on my laptop with mandrake 10 - as was suggested above, changed my keyboard layout in accessibility to 105 key.

Thanks for reviving a dead thread just to say someone's suggestion worked...
I had wondered something simular. I never use it for the START menu but I ALWAYS use it to get to Windows Explorer and a few other things. Out of habit I use it +E to constantly try to open Konqurer *shudder* (I don't like Konqurer, the way it lists files, I like the list view for most things, I don't like the way it shows names and lack of thumbnails for video files bugs me.)
