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.

I'm haviing multiple problems with KDE 3.2 and was wondering if anyone else is having these issues. I run Debian unstable, with XFree 4.3 and KDE 3.2.
If I switch from one desktop to another, then click on the "K" button to bring up the menu, my system stops responding for about 3 minutes. If during that time, I click elsewhere, once the freeze up stops, all the clicks are responded to.
Running Mozilla Firebird, if I try to type something in it for the first time, whether it's a website url or a login, as soon as I try to type, I get the same freeze, but after 2-3 minutes, it responds and shows all my keystrokes.
Kmail, if I try to compose a message, clicking in the TO: field, either directly or on the address book link, causes this freeze up as well of 2-3 minutes. Same issues with running control center modules.
This system started as a Knoppix 3.2, which I've upgraded and run a custom kernel for. And I did not have these freezeups before KDE 3.2.
