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.

You can install KDE components along side gnome without any issues. Many distros will have a variety of both no matter which DE you use. I use gnome myself but have many applications that use KDE components as well. It doesn't mean KDE will take over your DE or anything. Your DE will remain unchanged.
The only thing you might notice is certain applications that use only KDE components may or may not follow your theme entirely and show up looking a bit different, mainly the background of the window might be white if you are using a theme that is something other than a white background. But I use Okular and it follows my theme without any issue.
Nothing would happen to Gnome if you install Fluxbox. It would still be there in the session chooser and you could use it if you wished.
If you installed Fluxbox, Okular would still need its KDE dependencies.
Fluxbox is just a Window manager; it doesn't provide any native apps. Out of the box, Fluxbox can be pretty ugly, but, once you configure it up, it's excellent: fast, light-weight, simple, versatile, and elegant. It's my first choice on all my computers. Not that I'm a Flux fanboy or anything like that . . . .
As far as I am concerned, having a few extra libraries on my hard drive is not a big deal if it lets me use programs that make my computing life easier. The way I look at it, RAMs and hard drive space are there to be used.
There are a number of KDE apps that I prefer to their Gnome equivalents, particularly Kate, Okular, Kolourpaint, Konqueror (as a file manager), and Ksnapshot, simply because they work better.
The goal of the project is to provide a minimalist, clean and stable general purpose Mozilla plugin module that allows the user to embed and launch their favourite application to handle the various different types of media found on the Internet.
