Question new to black box


i installed bb and like the way it looks; but i mimimized mozilla and blurscope with radio paradise running and i can't find them (tried right clicking on the desktop, etc.).........xmms is still visible and i dare not minimize it.
how can i maximize(or find) what i minimized ?
also, i searched for a *general* faq on using bb with google and google linux but did not turn up anything. can someone point me in a direction for some newb instructions?
thanks,
ark

If you middle-click on the background you should get a menu with the last option being 'icons'. Your minimised programs can be found there.

Why not pick up a cheap 3 button mouse, or even, dare I say it, one with a scrolly-thing? They don't have to be expensive to be usable, and you'll be surprised at how much easier it is under Linux... lots of things are designed with a 3rd mouse button in mind

i may do that. just loaded redhat 8.0 on my *new* used gateway 500......experimental model, cost me $100. i'm using parts and pieces from old computers for externals (monitor, keyboard and mouse).
trying to get used to linux so i can ditch m$.
