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.

The gnome terminal works fine for me, but when I try to use aterm or eterm they just don't work. I enter a command, hit enter, and nothing happens! I can edit that line to my heart's content, but I can't execute anything. Anyone know what's wrong?
i am going to go out on a limb and just assume that when you do a "ls" or something that the text color is the same as the background color, or something closly related...when you open up aterm/xterm open it with the following: aterm -bg black -fg white
you can just type that in a gnome-terminal for the sake that you say that it works as opposed to the others..
i could be way out in left field, but with the lack of info, this is what i assume...
Sorry for the lack of info, but I'm kinda digging for it too...I run aterm from a gnome launcher or terminal (same results), and I'm quite sure it's not a background issue, since after I hit enter I can still edit the command I had just typed. I also don't get a new prompt.
For the sake of simplicity I'm going to focus on aterm. I'm using aterm version 0.4.2, and it doesn't dump any error messages. I mean, it runs fine, it just won't accept any commands.
Another detail that may or may not be useful, I can run aterm commands with the -e command line option, I just can't run anything once I start the terminal up.
If anyone can tell me how to get any other useful information, or even what would be useful, I would be happy to dig it up.
