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.

The first problem is that when updating from 7.2 to 7.3 I forgot to unselect some languages that I didn't need (like french and all that). After installing redhat I removed them using the package manager but my hard drive still says it has the same amount of space and I deleted like 17 packages and the smallest was like 3 megs. I don't know why it isn't recognizing that I deleted them, I uninstalled the packages, I don't know what the deal is.
The second problem is that when I access the "start menu" and I go over to say the games folder, it ONLY lists the subfolders, it won't list the individual games that are supposed to be below the subfolders. I do know that there are supposed to be games there because I went into the menu editor and the games I was looking for were all in there. Now I can paste those games into the subfolders using the menu editor, but it really doesn't seem right. I hope what I am sayin makes sense. It is like going into windows and going on the start menu and going to programs/accessories and seeing the folders that branch off but no MSpaint or wordpad or any of the usual standard programs that aren't in their own subfolder. Thank you for your time.
I'll have to check and see if I am using nautilus or not. What is nautilus exactly? Thanks for the tips though, any idea on the other problem with the "start menu" (I don't know what else to call it). Thanks for you help, take care.
Well, I fixed the problem with the menu not showing all the items that it should, but I still don't know why when I uninstalled those packages it didn't free up any room. If anyone could please help me with this I would really appreciate it!! Thank you for your time.
