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.

In Red Hat 9 I found a pre-installed application that takes screenshots for you.
-Place your mouse on a empty spot on the taskbar
-Right click your mouse and move your mouse pointer over the selection that says "Add Panel"
-Move your mouse over to the selection that says "Button"
-Select the choice that says "Screenshot" and either left click to take a screenshot or right click and it goes to your taskbar.
Now whenever you want a screenshot just click on the little camera icon in the taskbar and it will ask you to name it and where to save it.
from a console you can do import -window root filename.png . in fluxbox i use the keys file to bind this to something.
i found this thread on google and i still cant find out how to take a screenshot, it seems as my os (gentoo) doesnt have the app called "import" i tried to emerge it but it cant find it. where do i get it? its hard to google that app, :P thanks in advance
