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.

Currently using Mandrake 10.0 Official and KDE. I'm also booting into the console and NOT the GUI.
Earlier I managed to successfully install fluxbox after a little work, however I can't figure out how to get the default WM changed from KDE to fluxbox (and possibly back again), so when I type in 'startx' flux starts up instead of kde. In my searching I've figured out how to do it in RH and Slack ...but I'm using Mdk. I haven't found any reasonable solutions yet. I have a friend who is attempting to do the same thing, but he's logging into the GUI (selecting flux just logs him into KDE from what I understand). Clearly I'm still learning here, call me a newbie if it helps
So how do I do this? I apologize if it's a silly question, but the solution is lost to me...
worked like a charm
except fluxbox isn't listed for some reason. I get "kde, gnome, windowmaker, icewm, default, failsafe". I assume I need to edit a file somewhere, so where do I point my keyboard? I appreciate the help.
