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.

I was using KDE and decided to try enlightenment and now im stuck in enlightenment and cant get into KDE or blackbox. Ive already tried the "startx KDE" and "startx blackbox" and it still logs me into enlightenment under root. If i use a different login name it will let me go into kde or blackbox. It just wont let me under root and i used to be able to get into kde as root. If there is a file that i can modify or something i can do let me know, im tired of being enlightenmented. Im using mandrake 10.
when you use KDE, there is a console as well as a filemanager in super-user mode,( system -> more programs -> ).
you ( almost ?) never have to login as root.
( but with the file-manager.... be carefull , you can delete anything with a single mouse-click )
