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'm using SuSE 9.2 and can't get my Gnome to start.
I installed SuSE 9.2, and then installed supplementary 9.2 rpms from the SuSE ftp site (to give me KDE 3.4). I never logged into Gnome before I installed the supplementary rpms.
I am much more familiar with KDE than Gnome, but would like to try using Gnome more, so I am more familar with it.
The computer starts KDM at boot. Gnome doesn't show in the list. However, I can down the box to a command prompt, start GDM, and Gnome appears in the list. Unfortunately, I cannot login to Gnome. I get an error saying that there is a problem with Gnome and suggests trying to login to Gnome with the failsafe Gnome option. I can successfully login to Gnome using that failsafe option.
After the login fails, it tells me to check .xsession-errors file in my home directory. The file is created, but is empty.
I have reinstalled all the rpms for Gnome that I can find... but I suppose it is possible I am missing something that Gnome needs.
The only thing I can find in /var/log/messages is "Jul 10 09:35:14 linux gconfd (myuser-4526): Resolved address "xml:readonly:/etc/opt/gnome/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults" to a read-only config source at position 2"
