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.

All my windowmanagers work great, but when i try to start Sawfish, nothing hppens. I just get a mouse cursor. Ivé reinstalled it several times, along with linux but nothing seems to work. How can this be?
Have you tried running 'gdm'? Gnome Desktop Manager and then try running things from there. If so and it still doesn't work, depending on how you're running it, look at your xinitrc file and see if it's in there and properly? I believe it's in /usr/X11...That's all I can think of at the moment myself...
Originally posted by zhenwu This maybe isn't a very helpful response, but I have had nothing but trouble with the Sawfish/Gnome combo in RedHat (7.1). I switched to Enlightenment and haven't had a lick of trouble since....
Honestly, i'd have to agree on that remark. KDE seems to be my most stable gui, everything just crashes in GNOME. lol It'd be a nice regular if IT could stay regular! Any digital laxatives available?
Yes, I've noticed the same thing. I've always been able to load enlightenment standalone without running gnome first. I just went from mandrake to red hat, and i noticed that Gnome starts with sawfish on default. No way can i start it without frunning gnome first. So now i have come to the conclusion that enlightenment rokz, sawfish sucks ballz. However, now with Red Hat 7.2, i cant seem to start up enlightenment standalone. When i log in i only get options to start KDE, WindowMaker, and Gnome. Any body know how i can start enlightenment when i login?
