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.

No, that's normal with KDE in Redhat/fedora, because those distros are gnome based and they use the gnome display manager by default. If you use kdm (the kde display manager) , then you can shutdown/reboot in KDE , without logging out.
Have you looked in the Control Centre? One of the final options (not on Lnux at the moment) gives options for allowing users to shutdown the pc. There is also one for the log out window specifically which will let you say which you want as the default - shutdown, reboot, log out.

The distro is mandrake 10.1 and I dont get a logout window. When I logout I get the login screen.
