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 was wondering where the script is in Mandrake 9.0 that "cleans" up the KDE menu and how to disable it.
I just went through the complete process of compiling KDE 3.1 from source tarballs. I was able to get KDE to read the menu system from /usr/share/applnk-mdk (it took me a little while to figure this out).
Once I got KDE 3.1 working perfectly (all the files were in the correct spots, menus were built properly...) I shutdown my computer. When I turned it back on and logged back into KDE, Mandrake had completely removed ALL of the entries in the menu system that KDE 3.1 had created. Now, I have no access to the screensavers installed and most of my KControl items no longer work correctly because the .desktop files are pointing to different locations. So, after having spent 12+ hours compiling, I have a semi-functional KDE 3.1.
So, can anyone tell me how to disable this cleanup script permently? Otherwise it'd be a waste of my time to recompile KDE, again. (I'd use TexStar's RPMs, but there are apparently some problems with them that I have not experienced when compiling the source code).
