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.

Ok so I know about autorun when in kde but I'd like a script to auto run while on the command line after logging in (I use runlevel 3) but, I can't seem to find anything on how this works and most likely I'm just missing it and not noticing so if anyones got any ideas do share as this would help make life a lot easier for me!
To be brutely honest I've never used the ~/.profile before sure I remember reading quite a while ago on how to make one and that its useful so I do it but never gave it much thought so I'll give that a go as its rather small and not to big.
The >> /.profile means add the prior command to the end of the /.profile file. To start over use command > /.profile. As to if prior command finishes first the use of sleep 3[4,5] >> /.profile ( pick one number only) should ensure completion of prior command prior to execution of hte next.
