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 just recently installed suse 10.1 on a dell dimension 2400 intel pentium 4 2.6Ghz 514 MB ram and an nvidia geforce 5500 fx graphics card.
it took me forever to get xgl even working at all. just getting my nvidia card to work was hell.
i install the nvidia drivers and configure my xorg.conf file and finally got it to work... with a few bugs
i can't see the title bar on any windows and some of the icons get distorted. also i have 4 desktops running and the cube works but on the k-menu bar it only shows 1 desktop.
has anyone heard of these problems before and know a fix? i can give more specific info later if u need it.
Compiz does not work well on KDE as it does on GNOME. I personally had the same problems on openSUSE 10.1 using KDE, but things worked very well using GNOME. Beryl seems to play along nicely with KDE, so you may want to try it.
it does the same thing with gnome. some type of configuration must be messed up somewhere. i went through so much trouble just getting everything to work and changed things around so much that i'm having trouble backtracking and finding mistakes that i made. i'm going to go ahead and reinstall suse and try to get it right this time.... hopefully my plan will work
