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.

Basically I want to change the desktop background of KDE to pictures I got from the net. Where do I put these new pics so KDE will see them and what picture formats(*.tif,*.jpg etc) that KDE work with?
right click on the desktop, pick configure desktop, pick background, then you just browse to where you saved the pics and apply. Remember to tell it you want a single wallpaper and not common if you want it to be different for each desktop.
Distribution: Solaris 10, Solaris 8.0, Fedora Core 3
With redhat I just right click on the screen, choose configure desktop, and browse to the jpeg I want. Does Slack 9.0 not allow you to do that? I also found desktops to download from kde's webpage. They have this installer that places the pictures in a particular directory so you can access them without browsing.
