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.

i run KDE, in slackware 10.2 and from control centre ->regional & accessibility -> keyboard layout, i have added keyboard support for greek (layout), el (keymap).. i have set the layout variant to 'basic'.
as far as fonts is concerned i copied all of my ntfs (winXP) partition fonts and installed them both in my personal fonts list and in administrator mode (ie system mode).
in case you are greek and know linux well i note that i do have a little problem that havent managed to solve. it is not in the scope of this email but if you can help me out i would mostly appreciate it. while i can type greek in all applications i can not type vowels with stress (tonos)! how is that even possible? to make things even more confusing i CAN type vowels with stress in mozilla firefox!!!

thanks in advance for your help
