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.

u know how on windows, when u close MSN, it goes to an icon beside your volume button at the bottom right of your screen? how do i do that with gaim on mandrake ?
i tried everything i can, but it just won't go there, when i minimize, it only goes to the tool bar at the bottom of my screen (the center part), but doesn't become a small icon and stays on the right side like the volume button does.
Is there a Gaim tray icon, or docklet, or gnome applet, or panel icon, or something?
Yeah, Gaim supports what is called a system tray icon that conforms to the standards at http://www.freedesktop.org. This tray icon is supported by Windows, KDE 3.1, Gnome 2.2, and Red Hat Gnome 2.0. All you have to do is load the "System Tray Icon" plugin by going to Preferences and then Plugins.
If you're using Gnome you need to make sure that your panel has a Notification Area on it. To add one, right click on the panel, select Add To Panel->Utility->Notification Area. Gaim will insert the tray icon in any System Tray implementation that conforms to these standards, so feel free to write one for your window manager of choice.
yea, it more depends on what window manager you got (if it suports it i mean), or some other program that hanels the minimizing when the app want or is told to minimize (or iconify, same thing i think )
