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.

yes i do have both and i my default runlevel is 3 so i dont have the prompt to change them at login, i would like to permanently switch to kde and i dont c a tool that used to be in the fc1 and rh9 called desktop switching tool. is there any alternatives to this tool?
Whow, good question. I can't remember how to configure switching to runlevel 5 automatically at startup. Sorry, but I guess there is a setup_... script which you can run from the command line and is for configuring what you want.
Either search at google or maybe at RedHat or wait 'til someone else give you the answer...
i know how to change runlelels, youedit your inittab in etc for permanent change and you typ[e telinit runlevel for temp change but this is not the question. i wanna be able to switch between kde and gnbome for example. when i type startx it brings up x with gnome and i need kde and i dont know how to switch to kde. i used to be able to do it with desktop switching tool in fc1 but in fc2 this feature was removed for some reason and i'm looking for alternative.
you cann also change the entry in the file .xinitrc. It has to be in your home, if it is not there you can make your own. The entry to start gnome is "exec gnome-session", for kde it is "exec startkde", but im not sure with that, cause i don't use one of this.
