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 Java Application that I built. However I can't run this application except I run it as root. If I change the user to someone else , I can't run my application anymore. I am having this problem with my text editors as well I can only use KWrite when I am logged on as root. other wise I have to use VI . Can some please help me with this problem.
I figured that was the problem but each time I start up the system it automatically logs in as root without asking for a password or anything. Does anyone know how to change that? I temporary fixedthe problem by saying "xhost +" . But I will rather just log in as my newly created user.

So you should start another thread on the Red Hat forum asking why is your system automatically launching the graphic environment as root, without prompting for a password (both facts being major security hazards), and how to disable that and return to a more reasonable system, with a login menu and root account only used for maintenance tasks.
