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 would like to build a gtk+ compliant Desktop environment (something gnome-like) based on the sawmill window manager. The problem is with documentation. I could not find much info on how to start building one. Can anybody point out some god docs on how to do that?
Don't think about that so formally. Just use sawmill and apps you like, and it is enough of a desktop enviroment for you. The only time you have to think about it harder is if you are doing this for somebody else as well.
The problem is that I am doing it for somebody else and I would like to change the style a little bit. It should just include a stripped down version of Mozilla Firefox, a word processor and that's mostly it. The only thing is that it has to look good and be very easy to use.
Anyway thanks for your information so far. I really appreciate it.
Well I think i've got the general Idea of how things work. The problem is how to create things like a task-bar and how to customize the appearance?
Sorry if I ask stupid questions but I haven't experimented a lot with any window manager.
