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.

First of all I would like to inform you that you should better write text properly. We guys at LQ do not promote or rather dislike the use of chat or sms language in posts. As this is your first post it is fine but make sure you spell out your words correctly in following posts in LQ.
I m vry new to linux I am confused between x-windows,KDE,Gnome .Can anyone tell step by step their role in linux
Spell your words out, please. And no, we can't tell you "step-by-step" what their roles are. That's a very vague question, but in broad terms, X windows is the 'base' upon which most GUI based window managers (Gnome, KDE, etc.) run on top of.
And this sounds VERY much like a homework question.
hello, the without the x window system, the system would not display what's called a gui, (graphical display interface). a gui is when you have taskbars, icons ect. without a gui, All you see on your monitor is plain text with a command line, this is called a cui (command line interface. once your system is running x windows, it can't run a gui right away, it needs to know how, such as with a desktop envirorment. unlike windows which only has one desktop envirorment, linux has many which the users may choose to use. the current most popular are gnome and kde. the desktop envirorment runs on the x window to give you a gui.
