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.

When I go into yast, and click on anything, like my user settings, Yast2 pops up halfway off the screen. I know this is a really trivial issue, but it is quite annoying to me. I am running Suse 10. is there a fix for this that anyone knows of? Thanks in advacnce.
depends on what you mean by "halfway off the screen".
If you open YaST, let it finish it's start up, then do you have to manually move it with like click and drag, or does the whole screen move as if it's actually a bigger screen that what your monitor is actually showing???
If it's the former, then I don't know, but if it's the later, then it's probably a resolution/X thing i.e. that you have the screen showing, for example, 800x600 but the system is offering (again for example) 1600x1200 so it's as if part of the actual "desktop" is hidden under the edge of the screen. Which would mean that the virtual desktop facility is selected, so you have to make sure it's set the same as your main resolution so visually you're looking at the whole desk (as it were).
p.s. Oh and theres little point in trying to bump your thread/post in the way you have done (i.e. a little over 2 hours), because you'll end up getting a "snottygram" from one of the mods. Sure I know it's frustrating as hell when somethings not going right, but you have to be a little patient, it's not one of those paid support posts - there might not be any SuSE users who have experienced the same problem as you!
bigjohn is right, it does appear to be a bump, whether it is or not isn't important. regardless, this only happens with yast or all windows? if it only happens with yast find .yast or somthing like that. I have never used suse so i dunno if you have to be root to use it or not. check in /home/<you>/.yast and rm it. it should go back to default locations. if it has been doing this from the begining. Then check your monitor settings.
people like bigjohn help a lot of folks, myself included and being a little rude to people like that will get less of a response from knowledgable people in a timely manner for your questions
ya it has done this from the beginning I guess I'm just gonna have to mess around with the monitor settings. It is like yast trys to tile itself but is tiling itself halfway off the screen. And also I wasn't being rude to him which is why I said I appreciated him responding to me. If I was trying to bump my posts up I would have created another account. But there is no need because there is so much information on here to keep my occupied while I wait. If this is gonna continue to be an issue the let me know now so I can go make another account. And also I am going to request that this post be moved to the suse forum, I didn't know there were individual distro forums when I posted it.
