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.

2) nedit fails to start:
X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
Major opcode of failed request: 70 (X_PolyFillRectangle)
Serial number of failed request: 321
Current serial number in output stream: 331
3) Whenever I go to another console and flip back to my primary X session, whatever is in the cut/paste buffer gets pasted without me middle clicking.
Example: If I leave an xterm open at a prompt and highlight someword from the 'fortune' and go to my 1st console (CTRL-ALT-F1), then go back to my X console (ALT-F5), that word will get pasted into the prompt.
If I have processes running with a dialog to (C)ancel it, sometimes my jobs will get cancelled on me if I happen to have anything in the buffer with the letter C in it. I have to try to remember to leave an xterm up to take the incoming garbage from screen switching, or select a 'space' somewhere (even that can hurt) a dialog box.
This also wreaks havoc when I play WoW. I play WoW on another X session (started by an icon on my main KDE desktop) so I can flip back and forth with ease, but when I flip back I get 3 or more WoW sessions loaded as it seems to reclick the icon on my primary desktop. For the last 2 weeks I nulled out the program name in the icon and use an xterm to start WoW and watch the paste errors when I flip back and forth.
Actually there is a newer version of xmms released late last year that works great with slackware. You can get a build script for it from slackbuilds.org. I like xmms a lot, it supports all the file types I use including shorten which audacious and amarok don't support.
