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.

after windows xp screwed up for the last time, i deleted my whole hd and installed Fedora Core 2, a distro i had lying around and had been contemplating for some time. just a few questions i have.
1. in kde, how do i set the default file browser and manager to be nautilus instead of konqueror? can it be done?
2. also in kde, i have xmms and want to hide the taskbar icon like winamp on windows and leave the system tray plugin i installed. can i set a restriction so this can be done.
3. i have a feeling i screwed up the installation of firefox. the whole thing is installed in /home/(user)/applications/firefox, a directory i made. how can i fix this? firefox still works fine though.
4. how can i bypass grub to just run the default installation? (i only have fedora)
5. i changed a few setting and now somehow my trash icon is named wastebin. how do i change it back?
6. is there any way to get rid of those annoying sounds everytime i open or close a window in KDE?
7. and, finally, is there a way to hide the trash bin on the desktop?

3. No, that's not screwed up - if you installed it as you instead of root then you wouldn't have had permission to put it anywhere but your home directory. As root, move the firefox directory to somewhere like /usr/local/firefox and then make a link from /usr/local/firefox/firefox to /usr/local/bin/firefox
