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.

when minimized. I'm using Red Hat 9 Gnome. I know they are active (somewhere) I just dont know where they are or how to get them back. They are minimizing into the bottom right of the screen. Thanks in advance for your help.
Yes, they are all installed and configured properly (to the best of my knowledge). When I say "disapearing" I know they are not actually "disapearing" they are just minimized, or perhaps running in the background somewhere. To use the windows analogy (please don't hurt me!) right now when I run my cursor at the bottom of the screen, in XP there are 3 minimized windows.
Thanks for your help.
You can do the old fashion windows shortcut which is ALT+TAB to switch between programs. If you have a scroll mouse and the wheel also has a button action when you press down. Press it on the desktop and you will a list of programs as well as programs running on virtual desktops. If you have a mouse with three buttons the third button also does the same thing. I think if you press on the clock it will also give a list. GNOME also has a task bar option. You may have to right-click on one of the bars. Then go through all the menus from the pop-up.
Add a window container thing to your menu bar so that there is something to hold you minimized windows in, can't remember what it's exact name is, someone whose using gnome will be able to say exactly.
