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.

For some screwy reason my panels are missing. I normally have 4 them and suddenly I booted up and they were all gone. The menu on the bottom that is normally there is gone too. When I log in Gnome starts up and displays a bunch of little symbols for a couple of seconds as everything is set up - however it's not showing the little panel symbol to show that the panels are started up too. Anybody have any idea what's going on? I've been running Gnome for weeks on end with no problems. I'm using RedHat 7.2 in case that matters.
That's a very common problem, because Nautilus, the program which draws icons and menus in Gnome, is buggy as hell.
Try deleting (or ratter moving/renaming) the file ./gnome in you /home/user.
Doing so, Nautilus will "recreate" a new desktop for you as if it was the first time when you've run Gnome.
