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.

My problem is probably really newb, and I would like to state that I have searched this forum and other places for an answer, but came up with nothing. Perhaps it is because I am looking for the wrong things....so here is my problem.
I am currently running slackware 9.1 with dropline-gnome. I would like to know how (if possible) to be able to "minimize" quake3 from fullscreen and maybe make it minimize to the taskbar/tray..or atleast take focus away from it so that i can answer IM's and such if i am not currently playing and want to save my place on the server. I have tried doing <alt>-<enter> but that just takes it from fullscreen->windowed..and that causes my mouse to become very slow, also it switches so fast that i cannot make it lose focus...I am forced onto the q3 window and cannot leave it. The only way i can get away from it is if i move my mouse quick enough to switch workspaces or click on something else for focus.
I have tried using the Gnome keyboard shortcuts...which do not work for me. they'll work fine with any other window but not with games such as quake 3.
