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.

I am working on RHEL 4.0 on client machines. I dont want my users to modify the taskbar and the contents on it. Many of the users are deleting the options on the task bar. How can I lock the taskbar and items on the task bar? ( I know the right click option, which gives the move,remove and lock options, which anybody can modify)
[QUOTE=smoker;4349011]You could try changing the ownership of the contents of .gnome2, specifically the files in panel2.d
Even if I give only read permissions to /home/user/.gnome2/panel2.d, users still delete the icons on the panel and change the position of the panel to right, left, top bottom. How can I restrict to not do any changes to the panel? Please help me. They are creating havoc by modifying the panel frequently.
Thank you in advance.
I realize that it would likely be bad business to have the password just for yourself/your outfit, but perhaps the password could be given to whoever is the IT person at the client site and not shared with users of the individual machines for day to day use.
Edit: I used to work for a company that made card access systems sold through a network of authorized dealers. Many of the dealer techs would create their own logins on the security servers and workstations for maintenance purposes. Some of them would give the Administrator login (it was a Windows shop) only to the head IT guy or to the head of security, not to the day-to-day users.
I have created a user account which can use any anonymous user, but some users are changing the panel settings causing others worry. I want a solid solution for not to change the panel display and panel default icons.
