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.

Has anyone done this? I would probably use KDE as long as I could use Enlightenment as a window manager, but I haven't seen that used before. I've heard tell that you could use E in KDE 2.6 by replacing "kwin" with "enlightenment" in the startup file, but I run version 3 with Mandrake 9.0, and that setup is a bit different.
As a Mandrake User, you should run Mandrake Control Centre, and select KDM as your login manager, but UNSELECT automatic login. KDM is easily the best login in my view, whatever desktop you use. When you startup again, you will get the opening KDM screen you should be able to select Enlightenment if it is installed from a drop-down list.
If it is installed but not in the list, check out Login Manager in KDE Control Centre...
I've crashed a few programs but never by using KDM. If you load up Mandrake, you get an automatic login straight into KDE or GNOME and you don't see the xDM until you exit. The way to correct that is not to log straight in from Mandrake Control Centre, but use a manager like KDM. If you want to boot straight in without an opening screen or password, then use KDE settings and KDM itself sorts that aspect out instead of Mandrake. It took me months to figure that out.
