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.

Hey all i have a question to ask but i guess first thing is first, I am using mandrake 9.2 and Kde desktop, I removed gaim and upon doing that my instant messeging spot is gone to, So if i try to install gaim again, Is there a way to make the instant messaging spot in my start menu again? Sorry but i am a total thanx for any help
Click on the start menu - goto 'configuration - Packaging - Install Software'
type in your root password when requested and the mandrake installer will appear. Now type gaim into the search box and select the necessary packages. There will be lots to choose from but start at least with the basic gaim package and let it pick any dependencies (if there are any)
Simply choose install and the rest should be done for you!
