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.

How do I manually edit the K-Menu, without using KMenuEdit?
Every time I use KMenuEdit, it corrupts my K-Menu somehow...entire submenus go missing frequently. The only way I can solve it is to delete my user account and start over from scratch. Until the next time KMenuEdit FUBARs my menu, that is.
I use Mandrake Linux 10.0 Community, with KDE 3.2
I have Mandrake set to Use Original Menu--I don't use the MDK-style menus. I have my own personal menu layout I use, based on KDE's.
Thank you for bringing that to my attention! I had never noticed the ~.menu/ directory, and had always thought that the KDE menus were just stored in ~.kde/share/applnk-mdk (for my Mandrake 9.x system). The menus have repeatedly gone wonky on me, and I've just spent about an hour trying to copy differing versions of that directory tree to see what worked and what didn't work.
Now, here's a question: where the **** can we get documentation on things like .menu and how KDE works, instead of just diddling around and trying to notice things like that? I mean, I enjoy Linux tinkering as much as the next guy, but there comes a point when, dammit, I just have to start USING my computer for _real_ stuff, instead of trying to figure it out.
