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.

I just installed SuSE 8.0 and so far am very happy. However, I cannot seem to run the 'File Manager Super-user mode' from the start menu? It asks for the password and then does nothing...disappears. I don't believe I can get any apps to run as root user. I assume it's a permissions problem. Any help would be appreciated...
The password is correct. If I type in the incorrect password it will reject it and request another. Have you seen this behavior in SuSE 8.0 before? Maybe I should clarify: again, I can login as root and everything works fine. However, as a regular user, I cannot launch the 'File Manager Superuser Mode' from the menu with the root password. And it seems I cannot launch any programs as root using the 'Launch as a different user'.
Well I figured something out: the KFM will load as su on a default install. However, after I ran the online update it will no longer run KFM as su (from the KDE menu). I also cannot launch anyother programs as root by using the 'run as different user' option when creating desktop links.
The CL works as root though, and I can lauch the application by su'ing typing the executable.
Any other users with SuSE 8.0 see this behavior? Thanks...
