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.

When logged in as root in Red Hat Linux 8 and I click on the home icon to view my files
and folders the window opens without any files or folders showing and the icon at the top
right that shows the system is reading just keeps on going. A message that pops up asks
me if I would like to kill the application (just double clicked on the home folder) because
it has crashed. If I say to kill the application then it closes for a few seconds then opens
again the same way asking me if I would like to kill the application. I can say cancel which
just leads to the message popping up again. I can still log out and log back in, but then the
desktop is still the same way, on back to normal after rebooting. If I don't open the home
folder through the desktop then I can still work through the terminal and do other things.
I realize I can avoid this problem by just not accessing my files and folders through the
root folder, but it is quite annoying and I'm afraid it is a minor problem than could turn
into a larger one. Running KDE as desktop. Kernel is 2.4.18-14. By the way, other users
don't have this problem. Thanks for any help or suggestions, they are much appreciated!
