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 have a similar question... I'm using Redhat 8 with KDE 3.1. In the Control Center there are settings for transparency for the konsole under Personalization >> Konsole, but all this seems to do is make the background for the terminal windows match that of the desktop... Can it be truly translucent (i.e., can I be able to see other windows, text, etc, *through* that window?
As for aterm, I can't find any mention of that on my system. (I have a feeling I'm asking a stupid question, but here goes) What is it?
Can it be truly translucent (i.e., can I be able to see other windows, text, etc, *through* that window?
My understanding is that the transparent functions of the terminal simply take a snapshot of the current desktop image and regenerate that as the console background, so you won't see application windows behind your terminal, you see through them to the desktop.
