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 got a USB I-Pen Pro (it's a usb mouse that is shaped like a pen, with
the left mouse button being the pen tip). I configured XF86Config to
use 2 mice. The only thing that I can think of with my configuration
here is that maybe the protocol isn't IMPS/2, which is what I am using.
Anyway, I started X, which came up. My dockapps never loaded (windowmaker), and I
have a small titlebar near the middle of the screen that says "windows"
or maybe it was just "window". It looked kind of like a titlebar for a
drop down menu. I was able to move the pointer with both my mouse and
the I-Pen, but I could not click on anything with either mouse. I
eventually had to kill X and revert back to my old XF86Config file.
I posted a similar message to the windowmaker mailing list, because of the dockapps not
loading and the strange titlebar on screen, I dont know whether to think this is a problem with windowmaker or with they way I have xorg set up. If anyone can offer any
advice, please reply.
