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.

Why does the whole KDE taskbar or panel hangs whenever I KPPP establishes a connection? This did not happen before but I checked all options in the MISC tab at setup expecting that KPPP will automatically shrink to the panel. Unfortunaltely, it didn't and I messed up the whole KDE taskbar or panel. How do I fix this?

hold on, backup ... if you don't know what noauth is, then there is no detriment to you, it would appear you don't need it.
Nevertheless, what it is: it's a switch (not a command) for pppd, which tells it that the server you are connecting to does NOt AUTHenticate against you (ie you tell it who you are, but it doesn't tell you who it is). This switch requires privileges to use, and rarely is needed.
Getting back to your problem, i was suggesting that you run kppp as a standard user, and that the only ordinary reason why you'd run it as root, is that you are using privileged options. IF you are not doing so, then all should be fine if you run it as yourself.
This may overcome your problem with the task bar. BUT i also said, odds are you have some stale KDE modules hanging about (and i don't know how to fix that), and they are the cause.
