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.

If you boot to a graphical login screen, you may have a "Session" at the bottom. There you can choose what desktop/window manager you want to use. If you boot to command line create the file .xinitrc in your home directory and put in it
I'm having a similar problem myself. On my system I currently have KDE and Gnome. When I startx it goes into KDE. I want to be able to swtich between desktops but would much rather do it using the graphical login instead of from terminal. I had my system stop at runlevel 3 because I needed to troubleshoot but now that everything is working pretty well, I'd like to go straight into the graphical login. Does anyone know how to do that?
I used Suse 9.1. During the first disc installation, it gives you a list of its installation settings. For the runlevel it was set on 5. I changed it to 3 from that screen. So I want to know how to change it back.
