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.

without being arsey... why do you need one? i don't even need to use the slit at all.... not a single thing i would want to put in it. everything i use goes from a frequently changing popup menu or just from a console... it's a nice feeling being able to get all those little things working, but it's even nicer realising you don't really want them!
I understand what you are saying but I haven't quite reached the point where I can do without my places to click, seeing as I'm so new to Fluxbox. I'm sure they will go ... the clock will be gone in about 5 minutes. I've got a rather nice Timex on my wrist. wmmixer is useful and the mini cdplayer is cute. xmms -w is just there as a test. It'll go. They'll all go. But not yet.
My popup menu is getting more functional as each wmclock timed minute passes.
I need to know what I can have before I can decide what I don't want but..yes..Slit starts to die soon!
If you want to have icons on your desktop (where you also can mount / unmount stuff) use roxfiler http://rox.sourceforge.net.
To make it use icons, in your .xsession or .xinitrc add:
rox --pinboard=mypinboard -o &
Is there a way of opening files in given software after mount - e.g.~> mount /floppy (and then open the contents of that floppy in Konqueror)- but doing it on one command line? I'd like to try to put that command in my Flux menu or in gkrellm.
Boy! I'm having fun.
Fantastic!!! Thanks acid_kewpie. I imagined that the syntax would be something like that (which was why I could not guess it!) - who'd have thought that && was the answer?
I must find a good online source of command and command syntax - staring into space and guessing is no longer the answer.
