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.

go to http://shrike.freshrpms.net and download all the gkrellm packages and install them by double clicking on the packages. there's also some dependancy packages that maybe required, but you should be able to get those there too.
basically install the dependancies first, then the gkrellm packages starting with the first gkrellm package. then install gkrellm-plugins and then gkrellm-themes. to start gkrellm, the command is "gkrellm" without the quotes.
i'm using the package for redhat 7.3 so i don't know how different this is gonna be for you. but...
rightclick on gkrellm and choose Configuration.
there's a menu on the left hand side that says Themes. click on that.
scroll down the list box and choose the theme you want. when done, click the OK button.
when I run "gkrellm" in terminal window (gnome), it runs fine.... however,
the terminal is locked (can't type any command ...) when I CTRL+C, it ends and I get the prompt but, GKRELLM also closes...... what do I DO?
in the Command textbox in the Execute Tab, enter "gkrellm" instead of "opera %u".
you can do the same thing in gnome. i don't use gnome much at all (okay hardly ever) so you'll have to figure out how to do that. i think the particulars with the command to use should be the same as kde.
Sounds good guys.... but now, I'll ask you really silly question.... how do I create a shortcut on Gnome for gkrellm....?
I am so focused on the server processes etc.. that I haven't even explored a slight bit of all the bells and whistles RH9 has... I've used nautilus for few times... mostly, terminal and browser. ...that's it....
