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.

1) i have RH 9 so does that mean i have to download KDE 3.1 or does it come with the linux version i have?
2) when i go to windows exlporer all the folders look like icons i hate it. then i do View/AsList but it only makes it look like a list for that particular folder all the other directories still look like icons. is there a way to make all my directories look like lists?
3) i changed my terminal so the back is transparent so it looks like the pic i posted but how did he change the Menu/programs to look green and transparent? and the bar on the top how did he turn that green?
u just visit http://www.kde-look.org/ and download a theme that u like and install it by reading the install instructions at the site , then download an icon set then u could use the skins of winamp for xmms
Hey, I am also using RH 9.0 but with GNOME 2.0, here is my question:
RH9.0 comes with a default BlueCurve theme that will make GNOME bigfoot icon to a Red Hat, and panel in the bottom instead of the top. How can I restore my desktop to the GNOME default?? Which has the panel on the top and a BigFoot icon on top left of the screen.
I try preference --> theme and change the theme to "Original" and icons set to "GNOME default". But i still get a Red Hat icon, not a big foot. And panel still at the bottom.
To move the panel, left-click and hold on the panel, then drag it to the top of the screen, and release the mouse button. I don't have access to an older Gnome version, so I only know this works in 2.4. I hope it works for your version as well.
Only way I know of to change the menu icon is to replace the actual icon file. In this case I beleave it is /usr/share/pixmaps/redhat-main-menu.png
Rename it to redhat-main-menu2.png or some such and make a copy of /usr/share/pixmaps/gnome-main-menu.png with the name changed to redhat-main-menu.png You'll need to be root to make these changes btw.
It isn't pretty but it's the only way I know of.
