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've got Debain 3.0rl "Woody" up and running and just installed KDE, but seem to be having a lot of problems getting started.
I'm using Konqueror as my file manager. Is there a default KDE file manager also I can use?
Anytime I click on a KDE 'Help' button, it nothing happens. Somehow the help files did not get installed. Any ideas?
I made a 'Run Command' button on the KDE Panel and want to remove it. Can you tell me how? Right clicking on it doesn't do anything.
Some windows I open don't fit my screen, so I can't see the whole thing. For example, when I open the configuration wizard, I can't see the 'OK', 'Apply', and 'Cancel' buttons at the bottom of the wizard. The screen is not big enough for me to move the window up and see them, KDE Panel is still in the way. Any ideas?
Thanks for your help in advance and sorry if I posted too many questions in the same post.
2. Not too sure, it might be pointing to the wrong location, or nothing is there at all, try right clicking on it and choosing preferences, notice where it's pointing to, and see if anything is there (using konqueror).
3. How did you create the button?
4. You can move KDE panel out of your way with the buttons on the side.
I made the KDE Panel Run Command button by right clicking on KDE Panel > Add > Button > Run Command. That may not be exactly the path I followed (I turned my computer off right now), but basically what I did.
Thanks for the other tips! I'll look into your idea on the 'help' issue, but help from others is always good also!
To remove the button, I believe if you right click in an area without buttons, there is a "remove" option, try following that and remove the "run command" you placed there. If that doesn't work, post back and I'll dig into some KDE files to see what I can drudge up.

If you hold down the <ALT> key you should be able to drag the whole window/dialog around. Very handy for when things are just off the edge of the screen.
