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'm using Slack 9.1, and I've got an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro installed, using the latest fgrlx drivers from the ATI website.
That being said, I've got a strange problem- when I view a movie in kaboodle, the window graphics get corrupted in the top area of the kaboodle window itself (not the video area, thankfully), and in other windows' (konqueror) top area. When I say top area, I mean, typically, the File-Edit-View Bar, and the window title area above it. When I say corrupted, I mean green rectangular blotches. That's about as well as I can describe it. The effect is exacerbated for the konqueror window if I drag the kaboodle window over it (as the movie plays). I think (hope) with that description, one could sort of imagine it.
Now, this is more of an annoyance than a true problem, and it doesn't happen with any other video player (I've tried xine). I can live with it, but if anyone's got any ideas (agp problem, kaboodle problem, ati problem), I would rather get rid of it.
