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.

Is there a way to configure KDE for different users when they log in?
I run my resolution at 1280x1024 and my wife likes her resolution at 800x600. When she logs in she obviously changes it to her settings for her viewing pleasure. I want to know if it is possible to have KDE/"x" auto configure her resolution upon sign in and when she ends her session have it change back to a default 1280x1024?
we're in cat skinning territory here really, but personally i'd probably use xrandr as a program kde runs on start (i dom't use kde so can't tell you that bit) on your wife's settings only, so X will always load on the decent res but then quicklyu flip to the crappy res when her kde session starts loading. as the changes xrandr makes are non persistent, as soon as she logs out you're back to normal
I run my resolution at 1280x1024 and my wife likes her resolution at 800x600.
She likes 800x600? Possibly because the fonts and icons are bigger? If that is the case, then ask her to try 1280x1024 after you reconfigure font and icon sizes. All configurable in the KDE Control Center. Additionally, if you are running at 1280x1024, consider forcing X to run at 96 dpi versus 72 dpi. After you configure the fonts and icon sizes for the larger screen resolution, she might discover that she likes the additional real estate. Who knows, you just might get some extra snuggling if you're patient .
