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.

BTW this doesn't happen often, I just wanted to know a quick way to resolve this instead of loggin in back and fourth. I heard something about setting the timeouts of application lockups, but not sure how to do this.
It is kmail. Another question though, does the kill command only work if the app is locking, i tried to kill a non locked up kmail, and it says bash: kill: kmail: no such pid. Yeah I would like to know also if there is a gui version of Kill. Thanx a bunch everyone.
To bring your taskbar back, go to k, then run and type kicker. I don't know about you guys, but when I type xkill my mouse turns to skull and cross bones and then I click the program I want to kill. Also, you can optionally open a term and type 'top' to list all the processes and such, and that too will give you an option to kill certain things.
ha ha ha, oh yeah, good point. You can do it in a term too. Or if you have icons on your desktop to your home directory, you could open one up, and click on tools then open a term. Probably a few other ways too, just not at my box right now, so that's about it from memory.
Oh, top is alot like task manager if you haven't given that a quick peak yet.
