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.

U can also kill apps via the GUI by going to RH->System Tools->System Monior (this is under gome and is known as gome-system-monitor)
Oh yes u can do via the terminal like TheRealDeal said just one more thing if u used the cmd kill 12345 this will try and terminate the process nicelly and cleanly but say it doen not and becomes a zombie process use the following kill -9 12345 or kill kill 12345. This will terminate it for sure. One more thing say u have multiple processes of the same app instaed of killing one buy one try killall app.
I just posted the same problem with RH9. From one boot to the next it seems to change something every time! The modem lights work, then don't. The minimized apps are accessible, then aren't. Frustration limits looming!
