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.

thanks for the reply
I can boot up to desktop, most of my start menu has gone including terminals.
I changed settings in _drakesec pryor to this
is it possible to undo the changes and if so how.
i'm not too familiar with the filesystem or working from the command line
I was in drakesec and i checked a box to disable users to shut down the machine, now even as root i cannot shut it down
while playing music i noticed that i could play other users music so i attempted to make my own dir not accessable to others, and i think this is where the problem is.
I have a very basic menu as a result, with no config menu, no terminals
I think it is not so difficult to sort out, but not being familier with linux
it's a bit of a nightmare
I don't know how to solve your problem, but perhaps I can offer some insight to the menu problem. I had a similar problem with the menu, which I found out (through this forum) was a bug in 9.2. The problem solved itself after running Mandrake Update.
