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 am using Slackware 8.0, and my GUI is KDE 3. For some reason the pointer only senses my mouses motions if I move fast, but it rarely senses them if I move the mouse slowly. I am using an optical mouse, in case that makes any difference, any idea what the problem is?
What kind of surface are you using it on, and is it wireless?
Don't laugh, but make sure the receiver isn't too close to the monitor (if a CRT monitor). The electromagnetic noise from a CRT can disrupt the signals from a wireless mouse and create this sort of effect.
Ok, I guess I should give you my set up, the mouse is running through a KVM switch and I have three computers connected to it. The mouse works fine on the Ubuntu and Windows computer, but doesn't on the slackware one. And no, it's not wireless.
And texmex, how would I get to the xorg.conf file?
