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 jus wat to know is there any specific short cut for kde which i can use to minimise all the windows , i know there is a icon over there in the taksbar, but i need to know the keyboard short cut, is there anymethod to create that if we dont have, and iam using mandrake linux 9.1 .
in kde i know a work around, if u right click the icon and hit properties, under execute it should give u the command that calls it. then edit kmenu and add that command to the menu and create a shortcut key there. i'm sure there is another way, but that is the quickest way i could think of
thanks for replying, and i just right clicked that "show desktop icon" in the task bar, but it doest show a properties option there, as with the other items, for others i see a properties, for this onw i couldnt see one, i dont know why is that so?
i see only 3 menus when i right click the show desktop button
1. move show desktop button
2.remove show desktop button
and i didnt see any properties when i go thru that panel menu too, so can u explain it plz..
You can set it up yourself with the KDE configuration - there is a menu for it. Also, MenuDrake allows you to assign shortcuts for programs in the menus.
I have Minimize set as Win + Keyp [-] and maximize as Win + keyp [+].
