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 am using KDE 3.2 right now and I am kinda getting bored with it. I tried fluxbox but the terminal it uses is not so cool. What is a recommendation or maybe I can download a cool terminal for fluxbox I am not sure. I just want something cool. Icons are not important but I like to be able to customize as well. Well I will sit back and see what is recommended
Well, you can usually run any terminal you want in any window manager, as long as all the correct dependencies are installed. So you can most likely run fluxbox and run the terminal you use in KDE in it. I wouldn't keep from using a Window Manager or Desktop just cause of the terminal though..
I use GNOME with the metacity Window manager myself, because KDE is bulky and slow. Quite naturally I haven't and won't install it. I like Fluxbox though, and the terminals not the greatest but you can use other ones in it anyway. Fluxbox is too good for me to let that get in the way.
When I was using Mandrake and has ICEWM it annoyed me and seem to load up pretty quickly and load my programs slowly. I used xfce for about 5 minutes before giving up because of the odd sounds and it was hard to customize. I might give it a shot again, but I suppose GNOME and Fluxbox are just for me. I still reccomend trying xfce though, since you might like it afterall.
i'm using WindowMaker becuase i have an older machine and it works well for me. i've got my dockapps that put everything at my fingertips. i instaled wterm and i like that because it's transparent, which is pretty cool with certain desktop backgrounds.
works for me, but my linux box is only a secondary machine right now.
