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.

Hello, I am using Debian 3.0 (woody) and just upgraded to Xfree86 4.3.0 and KDE 3.1.3. Everything was working fine until I attempted to install Ximian Evolution via apt-get (apt-get install evolution). It appeared to work fine, but I couldn't find the icon in the panel or a script to run it. I did, however, find the program "KDE Program Finder" (or something to that effect); scanned for new programs and found Evolution; then added it in with a return of "1 program(s) added.". Well, when I searched through the menu again, it was no where to be found. So my next step was restarting KDE via logging off then back on. Now KDE hangs on "Loading KDE panel" in the splash screen for about 2 or 3 minutes then loads onto a grey screen with a cursor. No desktop, icons, or panel. Also, there is no response from mouse clicks (i.e. right click menu, etc.) but it does move.
Attempts to fix:
1. System restart...fail
2. remove then install kdebase (apt-get remove kdebase && apt-get install kdebase)...fail, doesn't seem to actully remove.
3. remove then install kdebase kdeadmin kdelibs kdegraphics arts (same as above).
4. post on linuxquestions...
