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 problem with wine and pokerstars.com program (I use this program as a baseline since I use it in many different OS's, that, and I just love Texas Hold'em, lol). It seems that when I run pokerstars in any other WM/DE (Fluxbox, XFCE, Gnome, IceWM to name a few) other than KDE, the animation lags really bad (and we're not talking hard core animation here). I decided this weekend to try out DLG and see how it worked. Had heard good and bad things about DLG but I like to make up my mind on my own. Over all, Not Bad. Of course, pokerstars had the same animation lag. I have found that if i turn off the sound (either OSS or ALSA depending on WM/DE) the animation works perfectly (same thing with DLG).
My question is this:
Why would sound be effecting graphics (except in KDE)? Is there something that DLG and other WM/DE do different with sound than KDE? Any ideas on how to fix this problem?
Group therapy night-
"Hi, my name is Bill. I've been having problems at work recently. Sales are down. The company I work for just isn't doing the same business it used too because of this Linux thing. I decided to give up my job and dedicate the rest of my life to finding out why so many people like using Linux. Don't get me wrong, the pay is great and the benefits are fantastic, but I'm just tired of year after year developing overrated, overly priced buggy software. However, I do like that blue screen that was added to everything. It's so nice to have several breaks in the day. It sort of reminds me of the time me and a buddy, back in the 70's..... Opps. Sorry. Didn't mean to get of track. My question is..... What do you mean my time is up!!!
