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 want to connect to my system from winXP. I used vncserver and connect to the system but not in X. I want to see all of my desktop like remote desktop connection on winxp. i can connect to WinXp desktop from Redhat but not from Winxp to Redhat.
Can anyone help?
Actually, the best way to get your normal X environment is to edit the ~/.vnc/xstartup file. By default, vncserver runs twm, which is horrible. Get into the xstartup file, comment out the twm line and add the start up command of your normal X environment.
The great thing about VNC on Win is that you can freak the person out on the other end by moving their mouse for them :-). On a more practical note, it's great for educational demonstration and what not. This isn't the default on a Unix system. You end up having another X server which the user on the other end doesn't see. Anyone know if it's possible to maybe export your Input for a given X server to a remote system (i.e have the mouse and keyboard redirected)? I know it's possible to export the display for a given app (which is great when you have some window just pop up on the remote screen), but how could you do this for input as well? I like to mess with my mom while she's playing solitaire :-D.
