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've been using FC3/KDE for a while now and am going to switch to Debian. I figured I might as well switch to a better desktop too. Is there a best desktop? I mean kde is kewl it recognises my hardware, dvd burner, usb devices. But kde runs a little glitchy in my opinion while at the same time using a WHOLE LOT of resources. What do you think???????????
i tried fluxbox and blackbox but both are pretty much the same and i think i found the menu in them but it was very incomplete for lack of better choice of words. i think im gonna try out a few more like ratpoison and rox.

If you find fluxbox incomplete you definitely
won't like ratpoison ;}
the 3 desktops i use are gnome,kde,and xfce i like them but im just trying different ones to see if there are better ones out there. i guess what i meant b y incomplete is they dont really have a menu or if they do i couldnt find one.
