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 a bash variable with a kdialog command in it. I am having problems getting it to display correctly.
if i run the command straight from a shell it works perfect but from inside the script i cannot get it to display right. here is an example of the variable where the number is the value i want returned and the quoted text is the menu item:
That doesnt seem to be working either. If you run through this set of commands you can see what i mean better.
jeff@linux:~> KDIALOGCOMMAND="kdialog --menu \"What did you want:\" a \"hi\""
jeff@linux:~> echo $KDIALOGCOMMAND
kdialog --menu "What did you want:" a "hi"
jeff@linux:~> kdialog --menu "What did you want:" a "hi"
