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.

Alright here's the deal. Some of you may have seen my rather long threat about this problem in another forum. I'm sticking to the issues here, I promise.
I had to switch mouses (mice?) and now Mandrake/KDE can't figure anything out. It registers clicks and so doesn't allow me to move the mouse around anywhere. I don't know of any keyboard shortcuts in KDE (anybody know some, please let me know.) An alt+tab, windows start button, alt+f4 equivalent would be a good start.
I put in a different mouse (which I won't have tomorrow) and it worked. Obviously something about this logitech 3 button mouse tricked Lunux. I can't find much to do with the mouse in the harddrake, etc anyway, and in X86Config, it just has one simple line about the pointer and not much else. Any suggestions?
On another note, does anybody know of a good webmin tool (lovely if it works remotely) that I can use for configuring qmail, apache, and possibly dns? Thanks.
Oh yeah, one last thing. For Qmail on linux, does each mailbox have to have an actual user account on that linux box?
KDE keys: ctrl+esc for mainmenu, windows+r for 'Run' dialog (run 'xterm'). If the mouse cursor acts weird it may mean it uses a different protocol. Run 'xf86cfg' to change stuff like that. You can also change the protocol in the 'Pointer' section of the XF86Config.
