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 started a multi page job but did not like the product after looking at the first page. So how do you kill it? I finally turned off the printer and logged out but everytime I fire up mandrake the printer takes off again.
Thanks in advance
GUI? That's that icky, sticky stuff that
one can't get of his fingers, right, and
that brings in vermin?
going to console won't do anything unless
you type it... and really, typing lpq<ENTER>
and lprm <something> doesn't take you longer
than "roaming" through a bunch of menues,
selecting a file, clicking the delete button or
menu entry ...

lpq is short for line printer q(something). i don't know
how to spell.
lpq lists the print jobs waiting to be printed.
type lpq and hit enter.
for line printer remove,
and the number that lpq gave you.
maybe kde's control center,
can do what you want. I've never used it.
