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 tried to install the new Gnome desktop from source and I didn't pass any arguments to configure, so it started installing in default locations. About half way through I started getting too many error messages, so I changed my mind and stopped.
The next time I rebooted my system and tried to log into Gnome, it tried to load the incomplete new gnome version (unsuccessfully of course).
How do I get it to go back to the old version (which seems to still exist, because it kept on working all the way through the compilation/installation and even worked after a restart of the X-server, but not anymore after rebooting the entire system)?
Is there some config file I can tweak which tells X where to look for Gnome, or something like that?
By the way, KDE still works fine, so it's not like my whole X-server is screwed up.
I already tried putting in the RH9 Cds and "upgrading" all of X, but to no avail. If I could somehow do this without reinstalling the distro that would be great.
