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.

There is more good documentation on that site, too.
I have a question for you. If you do a "ps ax," how many times do you see gkrellm listed?
I see the program listed twice. Also, it seems to me that my X starts up too slowly, and that I must wait too long for gkrellm. (I use startx instead of one of the *DMs and I've also edited my xinitric.fluxbox so that it points to ~/.fluxbox/startup, in the hopes of eliminating what seemed to me like repetitive steps during start up with the startfluxbox file...) Anyway, I'm just wondering if it's normal to have 2 instances of gkrellm running the way I do.
checking mine, i also show 2 instances of gkrellm listed....so maybe it's normal? i also show 3 instances of firefox listed, too...i'm not exactly sure what i'm looking at with ps ax, but at least you're not alone in having multiple instances of things.
I'm not 100% certain, but I think that the multiple instances of Firefox have to do with the way the program communicates with its cache. I'd see two seemingly "extra" instances of Firefox in my firewall status window back in the olden days when I used Windows at home (like, that was a couple of months ago...)
Thanks for letting me know that gkrellm is listed twice for you, also. I'm supposing that is "normal" - especially since I haven't enabled the option to allow more than one instance of gkrellm.
Hope you like fluxbox! I'm a big fan.
Here's another fluxbox specific site with some interesting howto articles, a wallpaper gallery, and also a fluxbox forum: http://www.fluxmod.dk/news.php
