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.

Having re-dumped KDE due to responsiveness issues, I find myself clinging to Konsole. It has one feature which I love: the ability to create and switch between "tabs" (seperate terminal sessions in the same window) with simple key combinations. I am not aware of similar functionalty in the basic xterm -- so question 1) is: is there a way to achieve the same in xterm? Question 2) is: since loading Konsole means loading half of KDE, it is pretty resource intensive; is there a less bulky terminal program around which'll do it for me?
The gnome-terminal supports tabs, and while I've never used Konsole, it seems to load relatively fast (not as quickly as aterm, but not so slow it angers me) and is a pretty nice all-around terminal. You might want to give that a try.
Originally posted by mikshaw I used Eterm for a while, then switched to aterm...it provides much of the same functionality while using less resources and seems to be a bit simpler to configure.
xterm is indeed the simplest, but doesn't provide the groovy features like transparency and fading that you get from aterm.
I looked at aterm's website and through the man pages (although I'm a little tired) and I couldn't find anything about fading, could you describe how to use that and what it does? Also, is there a way to tint the window to a lighter color, say, instead of blue, light blue?
