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 just been on a rampage downloading lots of GKrellM Plugins, however, I couldn't find any that gave the option of having it displayed horizontally rather than vertically. Does anyone know if there is such a thing, and if so, could they post the url, please?
What about a horizontal mode?
I agree a horizontal mode would be nice. But it would be extremely difficult to add because the GKrellM architecture is designed so that each monitor can accomodate itself to the same width as every other monitor. That is not realizable for vertical height so some monitors would still need to be stacked vertically within a horizontal layout. This plus some other problems would make a horizontal mode not a feature but instead an extensive redesign and recoding which I can see getting very ugly. However, while GKrellM is what it is, a vertical stack of system monitors, there is a way to somewhat "horizontalize" your monitors if you don't mind running two or more different GKrellMs. Just pick different config names for the runs and then configure each to show only the monitors you want in that column. Something like:
gkrellm -c stack1
gkrellm -c stack2
No, sorry Master, actually I haven't tried it yet, as soon as I get my darn lm_sensors to work on this bloody RH whatever version - it is now past 2.5.20; darn, and a little fan on the southbridge is dead - and I have no clue for how long it's been that way. Oh well, as soon as I get the sensors to work (maybe they died too ), I'll let you know.
I haven't tried it (yet) but I guess it helped in that I now know that what I was thinking isn't yet possible without extensive tweaking and fiddling... something that I'm not prepared to do (I'm no hacker/programmer). I was hoping that there was some parameter that I had missed, or even a plug-in, that would allow complete horizontalising... alas!
