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.

Try getting bbconf too. It works together with bbkeys and the link is at blackbox homepage . It allows you to have total control of your desktop (style, background, font size, keyboard shortcut). It's a must have . And usually compiles easly too
bbconf didn't work to install for me, for some reason, don't know which, forgot them but doing it without is not that terrible,
well, google a bit for blackbox themes, the files to edit are in /usr/local/share/blackbox/styles/
i don't get your frist question, one desktop instead of four? it doesn't mind if you have four desktops, you will just take informations from the one you use right now,
to configurate blackbox install bbconf, if you have done this already right bbconf in terminal, in bbconf you can edit nearly anything bout blackbox you want
I think he meant workspaces like gnome or kde which has four by default. Click in blackbox's tool bar and choose add or create workspace (I'm on gnome right now so I can't say for sure). I think it's with mouse left button, but I'm not quite sure
ah well, now i know which problem i had myself, i did once download qt source file, compiled it myself and everything, than you can run bbconf, but i'm to lazy to do it
i think this because qt was installed by rpm, and bbconf is a source file, if you installe something from tar.gz it often doesn't find some programms, got the same problem all the time
