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.

In the conkyrc shown the average load is given the argument "cpu" with no number, which may default to cpu1 (the man page I found doesn't seem to say) i.e. the first core of the CPU and the graph being displayed is for "cpu1" which is definately the first core of the CPU. Replacing both of these with "cpu0" woulddisplay the load average and cpu graph averaged over all cores.
Some more playing. Awesome. I think Awesome WM. Pretty easy to install but requires a recompile of Cairo. Build script can't go to SBo (they don't like stuff like that). This is the default config. Haven't had time to play with it.
