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've set up xfce4 on my laptop and would like to use it as the default. The only thing that I miss is a usable file manager. I like the new nautilus with gnome 2.6 and so I tried starting that up in XFCE. It works fine, but there's a problem with it rendering the file icons. For all files and directories, I see the standard file icon (which looks more like the one from gnome 1.2). For image files, I do see the thumbnails, and the 'Start Here' link on the desktop also shows a proper icon, but none of the other icons are picked up from my chosen icon theme (which I can set from 'theme preferences' withing gnome). Nautilus, while running in gnome shows no problems otherwise. Could anybody help me figure out how to make nautilus show the proper icons for all files when running under xfce? For those of you who do use nautilus in xfce4 themselves, do you have any icon troubles? Anyway, I would appreciate any help with this.
I'm running debian sid, xfce 4.03, and gnome 2.6 from experimental.
Oh well, it works, but now the icons back in gnome get messed up . Anyway, the xfce developers are aware of this, so I'll just be patient and wait for the next version to fix this. Or maybe till then, I can put in a little script for both the xfce and gnome sessions to link to the proper icon dir while starting up...
