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.

In KDE (Slackware) the windows are very big, the windows goes out of the screen. The rest of the is right size, the only problem is the windows. Anyone know how to change the default / standard window size?
Well, I did all the xf86config stuff, screwed up my computer and reinnstalled Slackware. I never got the question about virtual screen. I looked at the Control panel and virtual detoskop was diabled. What should I do now?

What does your XF86Config file in /etc/X11 show? Can you post what you have under the Screens Section here? That's if its still doing the same thing as before.
yeah, maybe it messed up your computer because you don't really know what too choose.. maybe you set your horiz synch and vert synch not good... or something like that. you can't screw up your computer by misconfiguring your computer. you just had to run xf86config again and change some stuff..
for graphics card, if your card is not in the list use VESA. that is what i used to do wrong :S
