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.

Hey ... I feel fairly like a newbie posting this question, but I still want to know the answer. I am using Gentoo Linux, it's great. On my desktop I'm using Fluxbox, and that works well, but my laptop is too old, even with Fluxbox I can feel the slowdown. So all I did was emerge xfree and I'm using whatever manager comes with xfree. The one that when you type startx loads three copies of xterm and that awesome (**sarcasm**) analog clock. Anyways I have three questions concerning this default managers
1) What's the name of it. I should know, but I cannot think of it, and I'm not sure where to go to check.
2) Is there anyway to change the number of copies of xterm that load, and not load that clock (because I don't really need to know what time it is)
3) Is there anyway to set the background (wallpaper) ... I've used gqview, and when I click set as wallpaper it makes the changes, but when I leave X and go back in the wallpaper is back to the nice solid black. Is there some sort of Config file somewhere that I can get this in?
