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 looked all around the configuration options, around as much as google as i could, and in various other places,
but i havent been able to find an answer to this question:
whenever im loading a program, a little mini icon of it appears next to my mouse cursor,
this would be nice, but the icon does not travel at the same rate of speed as my mouse cursor... its kind of laggy,
so i was wondering if anyone could tell me how to either,
A. get rid of the loading icons that appear next to the mouse cursor,
or B. get rid of the laggyness of the icon,
im using mandrake 10.1 with KDE 3.2 i think it is??
my videocard is a radeon 9600 and im pretty sure i have it configured correctly,
thanks a lot and i look forward to being a member of the community.
I get that too on standard installation but it's not a problem for me I guess the application thread setting up the application in memory is using all the resources and the program only updates the cursor icon every now and again
yeah i have done a lot from that menu,
but its not as simple as just one program for me...
its like, 8 tabbed windows with different things to do,
and ive looked around all of them (i think)
and cant find how to do this one thing,
sorry for the noob question , and i wouldnt be asking if i really could not figure it out...
