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 attempted to set up profiles in SuSe's SCPM through YaST. I clicked to Save the information, a new window opened (like a progress window), and then it just sat there, not making any progress. I can hear a click when the hourglass cursor flips, but that is all.
I tried ALT-F4, but that didn't do anything. I also tried to log out, but X won't allow that either. I am logged in as a normal user.
How do I force this application closed? I don't know its process ID.
Oh, I see - even if the PID shows, you don't know which process to look for. Well, that's the beauty of xkill - just put your mouse cursor on the window itself and click. *zap* Or maybe LinuxLala's thing. I wouldn't ctrl-alt-backspace except as a last resort, as that'll kill the X server itself and bring down everything graphical with it.
