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 installed compiz fusion on suse 10.3 x64 with 8800GT vid card. When i click compiz fusion icon, it runs fine but no effects take place (like when i try to use the cube or wobbly windows nothing happens).
Saying you clicked, you don't really see what is happening in the background, so i suggest try starting compiz from shell and that way you will see if there is any kind of error message, then you would know what went wrong. Second take a look at this http://en.opensuse.org/Compiz_Fusion , maybe it will help.
