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.

Why can I type a KDE command at the CLI as user but not as root? For example, if I type "kwrite" at the console as a user, kwrite pops up, but if I type "kwrite" as root, bash says there is no such command.
Thanks for the reply. I give. I have spent 2 years screwing with Linux. I have better things to do with my time then spend hours and days trying to get things to work. I have gone back to Windows 2000 Pro. At least everything works out of the box.
