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 have upgraded my Mandrake 9.2 to Mandriva and somehow lost the Configure your computer Icon. Can anyone please tell me how to put it back or tell me the command that starts it so I can put it in as a run command.
Assuming your using KDE right click on some blank space the taskbar thingo (actually called the 'kicker' panel I think) and select 'Add'->'Application Button' and then use the menu that pops-up to find the 'configure your computer' item (hint: its in System->Configuration I think). It should now appear but if its in the wrong place just right click on it and select move and move it to where you want by moving your mouse.
Originally posted by kitek Just as a follow up. I did the urpmi drakconf and that got the control center back however, It dosent have the Software Option inside it anymore so im unable to add/remove packages.
