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.

Hey, Linux comes with terminal types or TTY's Terminal Type (Unix terminal interface). You can access these terminals by pressing ctrl+alt+F2...F5. login as root, and then type in the command as listed above.
You can also open up your home folder (part of konqerer) and click on tools and then open terminal/console connection.
You will have the login credentials that you are currently logged in with so you may be blocked from viewing this app.

There is nothing in those commands that needs to be done as root; you would be better logging in as a regular user.
You may also have difficulties starting KPPP in a console, as it is a graphical application. You're better off using a terminal like konsole or xterm.
It's not in the menu and the command that you posted doesn't work. "Command not found" Or whatever. I installed KDE, but I did the minimal download because the normal one was too big and didn't fit or something.
