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.

Ok, I've been playing around with WindowMaker for awile now. The one thing I can not figure out is how to add icons to the main desktop. I've seen many screen shots with standard icons. How can I do this? I've been able to add dock programs... I have too many of those now.
Come on, Walter. You only posted the exact same question yesterday! Now, I imagine you've read the rules, please take particular notice of the 6th bullet point:
Do not post the same discussion in more than one forum. Duplicate discussions can be frustrating for other members. Try and pick the most relevant forum for your post. If you are unsure put it in Linux - General.
Some people won't have looked at either of your posts yet. Give it a little time. Now, if you really must, feel free to bump a thread so that it appears at the top of the 'new threads' list, but don't create new threads that are identical.
OK, I can suggest that you use Window Maker as your WindowManager for Gnome, and then simply stop the panel from running. I can suggest that you run nautilus in the background (I think that's how Gnome has the icons on the desktop)? Anything sound good so far? Oh, and just so that you know, I wasn't slamming you. You'll know when I'm slamming you! I was reminding you in a polite fashion about the rules, and that you shouldn't double post.
