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 upgraded every package on my system over the course of the last two days. It threw my customizations off a little, but I was still sitting at Blue Curve with no menu customizing yet, so I wasn't bothered by this. But it did do something that is bothering me.
I no longer get the normal Blue Curve login screen at boot up. I wonder if this would be because I uninstalled Metacity (I don't use GNOME, so I wasn't sure and just got rid of it). I get the XWindow style login screen. When I enter my info I'm brought to the stock XWindow screen with the single terminal and nothing else. I type startkde and my session resumes.
I'm sure this is an easy fix, which is why I din't feel to bad about asking the question. I would have looked it all up, but this is my production PC (teaches me to get ambitious with my PC's performance during a project...huh?). What's the file I need to look at? Where's it at? Do I need to reinstall anything? I didn't remove any XWindows components, or KDE for that matter, I just upgraded them.
I might be wrong here but I think Red Hat uses some Gnome specific file for the login prompt, try reinstalling Gnome and see if that fixes the problem.
This is just a guess based upon the rememberance of some reading a while ago .....
