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.

the install went well, i didn't have any problems that i could tell. i get everything set up, log on with the gnome manager, set inittab so that X starts automatically, try to set up the internet and it didn't work right the first time, but i know how to fix that, so that isn't a problem. my first problem was trying to log into KDE, it gave me an error saying that 'startkde' wouldn't work, that confused the hell out of me because i've never seen that before. so i figured that maybe i just needed to restart (plus i needed to anyways) so i restarted and figured i would go check something with Red Hat, i get to LILO and go to the option i set for Red Hat and everything starts ok, but it can't find the folder with the module dependancies, then it failed the modprobe again. so that was another problem, so i restarted because there wasn't much i could do without some of those kernel modules, and i get back on Slack and i still can't get on KDE. could someone help me with either problem? the booting Red Hat problem never happens with any other OS. i use LILO normally and it never happens, i installed Debian and used it and it didn't happen, then Red Hat 9 and it didn't happen, but then it did it with Slack, so i don't know what's up with that. but any help would sure be appreciated. thanks.
