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've been busy browsing the KDE-look.org pages, and have seen some nice things I'd like to include in my own desktop.
Installing seems a bit kaotic, It seems the cursor themes are either not recognised by KCC or I'm not doing it right (holding my tongue the right way), But I'm a bit of a newb when it comes to beautifying the desktop.

Check out the readme or install docs with each theme, some cursor themes very but if your using KDE window manager I think you can go to KDE control panel ( Main Menu, System, Configuration, Configure your Desktop, Peripherals, Mouse ).
Select cursor theme tab and at the bottom is an "Install New Theme" Button.
If you have problems write back with cursor theme name.
That links for adding a KDE based cursor theme to Gnome if your using KDE its much easier . After creating .icons in your home directory just copy the files in the cursor theme ( Im assuming its a tar file ) and paste into .icons and restart X.
Thats if you cant install it by pointing the "Install New Theme" Installer to where ever you downloaded the package
Im using the Blue Glass theme myself
Ok where ever the tar file that you downloaded is just double click it and it will open.
and you'll see a file named Silver-XCursors-3D, double click that file and youll see Silver, default, Copying, and readme.
All you half to do is copy these and paste them into your .icons file and restart X.
Typically the Readme or install docs in a tar package is a good source for info on how to install.
