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.

Desktop doesn't display properly via VNC
I've configured VNC on numerous servers and it seems to work fine on most of them. However on the last 2 or 3 servers i installed on, i don't see the proper graphical desktop. I've followed instructions from: http://bobpeers.com/linux/vnc.php
I don't know if there is anything wrong with my X windows or what. Please help..
Distribution: Debian PPC/i386/AMD64 6/7, Vista, XP , WIN7, Server 03/08
Well you should install the Xserver from the packages for your distro, however, I do not think that X is not installed because you should not get a grey background unless X is installed, it sounds more like your window manager is not starting.
