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.

sorry im at work but i belive that i am running xterm <-- if this is the default terminal in redhat 9...
when you go to the "red hat start button" then in there there is an option for terminal and it starts that terminal other than that i will be able to repost exactly what terminal i am using when i make it home any idea for a fix if i was running xterm
thanx for the command with no d's to find out what terminal i am using
(When you get home) try using ctrl-alt-f1 and using a plain text terminal to see if you have the same problem. It could be some strange keymapping setup under X (xterm is part of Xfree86 or X.org, so if it works in text mode, try reinstalling whichever of those two packages you use).
I get an email when you add a post, so I will see your results eventually. Don't get impatient after you post though - the weekend is just about to start, and I am going to be a little busy for the next couple of days.
