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.

Hi all ,
I have KDE 2.0 installed on my Linux workstation running Red Hat 7.2. In order to install a new tool, I require KDE 3.0.
So, I went ahead and first installed qt 3.0 but then I wanted to find out where my KDE is installed as it is not installed in the default location .
I looked through all the directories and found two kde directories..
one in /usr/include/kde and the other in
How do I know which one is the right one for my installation.
I disagree with Adam on removing all your KDE 2 stuff (yet). You can happily, and easily install KDE3 along side an already existing KDE2 installation. The only thing I can think of that might be for Adam's reasoning would be preferences for KDE apps, but this shouldn't be an issue. If you install to /opt this is the easiest (IMO) way to do that. I'd say to keep KDE2 for now, just to make sure everything checks out fine with KDE3, then if you find yourself never using KDE2 again, go ahead and begin removing it. If this is on an RPM based system (Redhat, Mandrake, SuSE etc) it should come with utilities to make this all a little bit easier. If you are on a custom system, or a source based system, you still probably have something to easily uninstall KDE2. You probably don't want to go through and randomly remove directories though. If you have built an LFS system, you can enter the source directories from your KDE2 install, and run a make uninstall from there.
So when you are compiling for KDE3 specify:
to set the directory for that. Might also need to check the make file to make sure it got set properly too.
