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.

my computer has been up and running fine and i decided to install the xine player when i did, it asked to uninstall a bunch of things, i stupidly pressed ok for all of them then when i restarted my KDE will not load up, i cant even go to the auto login and select KDE because it it not on the menu, but when i go to remove packeage, i see abunch of stuff under kde environment. Please help me, i dont want to have to uninstall and reinstall again...... Those packages that i had to uninstall had to do with KDE multimedia, or something
ok i got everything fixed, i can now log into gnome, and the login screen looks the some as i did before, but now KDE does not show up in the list of WMs to log into..... but it does show up in the "Auto login" screen under the control center
