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.

Could somebody tell me how to remove KDE and put gnome or anyother platform please? i have knoppix 3.3 but i do not know how to remove KDE...since it is bugging platform i really would like to change to something else. Also please tell me would this affect my configuration..for example sound card config etc.
you can start X manually, like #X but, then you don't have any window manager at all! Try researching some about X and Window Managers, and how to set them up, I'm pretty sure you can just ignore KDE's presence, and do what you wanna do.
Well, if you remove the whole KDE, may apps won't run (especially if you remove both KDE and QT). I think it's a better idea to remove the apps you don't need (kdegames, for example).
freak111, please tell us why you want to remove it? You think it's slow? You don't like it? You need disk space?
freak, as Mara points out, is there really a need to physically remove KDE, or do you just want to use Gnome instead of KDE as your window manager? If you need to change managers, you should be able to just run xwmconfig and pick whichever one suits you best. -- J.W.
