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.

Ive been using kde for a while now, Im not the best with linux but learning quickly. Just curious. Firefox seems to be really slow. and konquier <- How ever you spell it. Is there anything else anyone uses out there? for speed? they both seem to lag for me.
I tried Vector and I thought that it was a slow acting distro. Which was surprising since it is based on Slack. KDE is it's default so that's part of it. It is a easy to set up distro though.
If you have at least 256 MB RAM in the machine it won't swap until you've run the machine for hours. Unless you are running some heavy graphics apps.
The more RAM you put in the box the better.
If you only have 128 MB or less in the machine then it will swap. The solution is to run a lighter windows mgr like fluxbox, that will take up way less RAM. Or put more RAM in the machine. KDE slows things down regardless of what you do. Running KDE and Slack is like running a swift horse and then putting a heavy load on it.
