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 don't know what I did yesterday. But today when I logged in to my linux box I saw no icons ( in desktop/statr menu/right click menu )
Instead it displays just arrows in the menus.
Also the task bar has been moved to the top with the redhat icon being replaced by gnome icon.
It shows several error (alert) messages nothing I could read where the Ok button ( I suppose ) in that error message shows ">". Same with the "Details" button.
This happens only when I am a user.
When I logged in as super user everything works fine.
I played with samba yesterday. I hope this might not have created the problem.
The last but one command I did yesterday was
dd -if=/dev/hdb3 -of=/mnt/windows_dir bs=512 count=1
What might be the problem ?
chmod -R 770 /home/*
chown -R guest.guest /home/guest
I am in KDE desktop rh 9. Even I tried removing the user ( & home directory) and adding it again.
But that did not work
Thanks in advance for the help.
