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 have just configured a Directory Server and I have been able to login using the credentials as a Directory Manager on the server.
I am working on the server through VMWare.
After logging into the server, when I am trying to add a user, say "user1" I am unable to do so, in the name of the user name field, all I can see is a "u" and not the complete user name, the same thing happens in case I try to setup a password, so i really don't know whether the password that I am setting up is being accepted or not.
Also while trying to add a user, i can see the logs running in the background on the terminal, that a java program is running as I typing or clicking on any button.
Can someone suggest me what to do to proceed ahead, I know its a strange issue, but I have to do it.
Erm, ok so in the idm console when you right click and get a new user, you have first name, surname and below those two is the username. You can put whatever you want in that username field, so I don't understand what you're confused about. The default username for David Jones would be DJones, so maybe you've only put a first name in and that's all it's compiled for the username yet? It is a fairly ropey java application, and *can* do weird things though. are there any java exceptions visible from the terminal you run it from?
Actually I created it as a test server before I could go on live with it.
So I just tried to create a user with the name "User 1" and the username as: "user1" but all I could see being typed in the field was just a "U" both in the name and username fields.
However as I go on typing or pressing backspace I could see in the terminal, that as I was pressing a key or clicking any filed a new java entry was popping up in each line, as if it is registering the commands, but were just not visible to me in the fields.
Same was happening while I was typing the password for the same user.
If you wish I can show you the screenshot as well.
I know, that java can make you pull your hair, LOLz
