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'm not talking about transparent terminal windows.... i've seen actual terminal outputs as part of the desktop background as it scrolls through code etc... looks cool. anyone, any ideas?

It is a Transparent terminal window.
Download eterm and then start it with....
Eterm -O --buttonbar no --scrollbar no -x -f white -g 125x50+0+0 --font2
Reading the man page will tell you what all those options do.
Can i ask you guys a quick question? i cant seem to get cut and paste to work on either Eterm or Konsole.... i have to actually use the menu bar and click cut or paste..... the ctrl+c/v options dont work......this is annoying especially in the transparent Eterm where there is no menu bar! is there any way to turn this on? also if i cant cut and paste does anyone know how i can at least save any text output to a file ? i heard something to do with pipes but am a newbie
If your mouse has a mouse wheel try clicking the middle button, if it doesn't turn on 3 button emulation(ie you click both buttons to represent a click on the 3rd button)
To save output you use '>' to redirect the output to a file, eg
