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.

Hi guys.I'm totally newbie to using linux.Just using it about two weeks.first trying out centos, after that suse 9.1 and finally kubuntu.i found out kubuntu really suits me well.It's not that i don't want to use ubuntu,i just hate the gnome desktop.no offence to snyone.back to my problem,i created a panel containing shortcuts to frequently used pogram.i also want to add links to my fat32 partition.how do i add it??i try and drag the shortcut on desktop but there's nothing there.All opinions will be helpful.
Kubuntu is still based on the Ubuntu core which is uncompatible with the pure Debian repositories. Maybe it's just me, but I trust the 10 years behind Debian. I don't see why Ubuntu is reinventing the wheel when Debian has everything you need. I also don't care about the 6-month release project. I just do apt-get upgrade or apt-get dist-upgrade once in a while and I'm up to date. Granted, Kubuntu has KDE 3.4, however, it won't be long before this makes its way into Debian if it hasn't already. But, to each his own!

Well, KDE 3.4 won't make it into the *stable* Debian version for another two years or so (whenever Etch will be declared stable). By then it'll rather be KDE 4.x.
If you're willing to use the KDE packages from the testing / unstable / experimental repositories (that's what I'm doing a.t.m.) you don't have a security team that guarantees timely fixes. (K)ubuntu does have one. One reason why I'm interested in Kubuntu...
As I read the site you linked it would install a debian system in stead of Kubuntu. Azwandy states that kubuntu really suits him well but has some questions and you suggest installing a Debian proper system.
