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 found these in another question: http://ftp.linuxcenter.ru/iso/Mandra...d-CD4.i586.iso
but they are are either unusably slow or simply unreachable
The download version of 10.1 does not come with CD#4. It is just "extra" stuff, like KDE3.3, that isn't *needed*. Some people have taken it upon themselves to put the 4th CD up on the net, but as you say, those sites are generally slow or even unreachable.
If you really want to try KDE3.3, you best bet is to follow the instructions in the thread you link to in your first post. Just be aware that the KDE3.3/MDK10.1 integration has some problems, which is why they didn't use KDE3.3 as the default install in the first place.
I'm a search expert for a company in Florida. It's my job to find anything they want at the cheapest possible price. It could be anything from information to an office chair. I'm very good at what I do but was having a time with certain aspects of the linux install as I see that others have. The above links and download times are extremely slow and even when accessed through my T1 max download trough-put was only about 20K per sec. and required about 6-10 hours. Here's one that will help you all. Max throughput I reached was 176k/sec and download time of about 1 hour plus. Hope this helps anyone out having this problem. Good Luck. http://game.intrstar.net/ftp/linux/m...d-CD4.i586.iso
