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.

when I tested the cool new features, I couldnt get it to remain stable long enough to even take a screencapture.. imho thats a pretty good reason for me not to use the composites, tho I have to admit they are some serious eye candy.. Pretty heavy on the machine too.. Tho it might have been my crappy nvidia card with only 128mb .. d:
Secondly (and most imprortantly) I don't use KDE, I use XFce 4.2 which has support for the new transparentcy feature (from the XFce website "Xfce 4.2 provides bleeding-edge features, like a compositing manager for xfwm4 (a manager for the new X.org Composite extension, which brings true transparency to the Xfce Desktop)" )
I also use Fluxbox (0.9.11) sometimes bt thats besides the point.
Originally posted by KMcD The new driver is "kbd", as opposed to "keyboard".
hm.. interesting.. (:
Well, I wont argue with you on that.. All I know is that when testing X wouldnt start untill I lowercased the driver name..
But you are eight now that I looked around a tad.. Guess the driver name changed again then eh? (:
Beh, ignore me, I was behind the development, kbd it shall be (:
