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.

Update: I must apologize, I was really rushed when I did the above post. I DO get the login screen; whant i posted above is what I get after it crashes and i try to start x. Specifically, it crashes when I attempt to launch KDE... I've discovered since the initial post that I CAN log into XFCE (which is every bit as dreadful as i remember it). I also realized that I did not downgrade to the last version of qt; I downgraded to the one that was in the source tree on my hard drive: specifically the one that came with Slackware 13.1. So right now I'm upgrading to QT 4.6.3 and will check back when I find out how that goes.
But I's still like to know what happened (I really want to upgrade my QT so I can browse with Konqueror. I did this last week and it worked fine; how come QT 4.7.1 is now wrecking my KDE? Right now I can neither log in to KDE or launch any QT-dependant KDE apps from within XFCE. Can anyone help?
