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.

Since there is not Wolvix subforum I have come here to bug you all. I gave Wolvix a try to get some ideas since I had planned to do a Slackware install setup with Fluxbox as the WM. I liked it so much that I installed it to the HD and I plan to live and learn with it a while before attempting my own install.
For some reason while in a fluxbox session the menu commands to Restart or Shutdown do not work. They won't even ask me for my root pw. I can perform the commands from the Terminal as SU (shutdown -r and shutdown -s iirc), but as a normal user clicking on these menu commands does absolutely nothing. I had copied over my .fluxbox menu config files from root to user assuming it was a result of a poorly generated menu. No dice.
These shutdown options do work from a normal user XFCE session, but I want to use Fluxbox primarily.
Does anyone know what the problem is and have any potential solution? Even if I was prompted for the root pw I'd be happy. Thanks so much.
As far as I remember the only menu entry was 'exit' which shutdown the x server. Don't remember an entry to shutdown computer, but it is possible to make one. You will need to use visudo to edit your sudoers file and make an entry like:
