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.

how can i get my desktop to look like that? that picture was one of the first screenshots i've seen of linux before actually using it, and i've always wanted to get my desktop to look like that... do u guyz know what i can do to change it to that? what programs, etc. thx
the screenshot is originally for mandrake 9.2 with kde 3.1
i have suse 9 pro with kde 3.1, but as long as it's kde i think its ok
Just a couple quick notes as well. The programs in the upper right are xmms (a music player), and the other program is grkellm. I had a heck of a time trying to figure out what gkrellm was on the net. Also, I use aterm for a transparent terminal as the one here.
start -> configuration -> KDE -> LookNFeel -> style. Click on the tab "effects", check "enable gui effects" if it's not already checked, select menu effect "make translucent" and then you can select the opacity you want on the slider bar underneath. (I'm using mandrake, not sure if that makes a difference or not)
