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 a german keyboard, with a lot of extra keys and some deadkeys.
They work well under nearly every application, such as OOo, gnome-terminal, gvim and the like.
But they don't work in xterm and the X-Frontend for emacs (xemacs).
No deadkey is working, not the caret symbol and not the acutes (` and ´).
I have a customized .xmodmaprc, where I load some special key-bindings, for the super-duper-useless right windows-key, for instance.
this file has only three lines, for the keys that I change from the standard layout.
When I need to use xterm or xemacs, I load another config file for xmodmap, where I re-bind every deadkey, to it's undead counterpart (pun, quite intended). And in case of xemacs, this happens quite often and is really uncomfortable.
What I need, is the deadkeys to work under xterm and xemacs.
I've read some solutions for this problem in some cached Usenet posts, but they all suggest using a non-deadkey layout, but that's really inconvenient in my case.
PS: They work with emacs-nox, but only if not in the xterm console...
