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 Gnome, the Force Quit panel utility does exactly that. To add it, right click on any gnome panel, select "Add to panel..." and add the "Force Quit" applet. When you want to use it, click on its icon and then click on the application you want to kill.
Pressing control alt and esc at the same time should bring the x kill x up also
This is only good for an app thats presently showing on the desktop so that you can place the x cursor over it and kill it.
The CTRL+ALT+ESC combination does not work when I am using Compiz-fusion on Mandriva 2008, I just created a shortcut on my panel (or you can edit the shortcut keys in compiz-fusion to run the xkill command)
