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.

Hi- I successfully installed Slackware 10.0 and selected KDE as my desktop. Everything is wonderful. So I was pokin' around to see what's what and I started the signature api.
I figured I should probably know a tad more than I do before I signed anything and selected 'quit or exit or...'. The api froze. I waited. I waited some more. The entire system was stuck so I hit the dreaded RESET button.
After reboot I STARTXd, ran KDE and the splash screen came up and ran to about 40%, specifically the 4, on the progress bar, and there she sat. And sat and sat. So I RESET again.
Reboot. From the console I reinstalled KDE. Rebooted. STARTXd and same result.
Reboot. From the console I formatted the root partition & reinstalled Slackware 10.0. Rebooted. STARTXed and it worked. But something came up and I shutdoen. On restart KDE gave me the failure.
Gnome 2.6 comes up as do all the other windows managers but no KDE.
My main concern is not so much KDE, but to get on the internet and KDE looks like the only way on.
All assistance is appreciated. This is not critical but important.
