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.

System settings - Server settings - Services
Thanks, and if i stop all services will my cpu continue running? :P
cause i dont know which one i can stop, im using my computer with the shared internet connection of my brother so i must have networking things..
if u do not have NFS of u use then stp that service
also uican stop PCMCIA service
also some rpgssd and etc etc services are invilved with nfs, u my stop that too
also u can use a browser such as fire-fox or netscape for good performance
u can start all the services at later time............
I very like gnome but i think that if it continues to run like this i'll change it for fluxbox, cause when i was running on fluxbox, nothing was slow...
Why not use XFCE as your window manager...it comes with FC2. It is very light on system resources, yet it still has a KDE/GNOME feel to it...very good combination.
If you didn't do a full install of Fedora Core 2 you won't have XFCE installed. Do a google search to find out how to install XFCE from your fedora core 2 CD-ROMS....all you have to do is copy 10 or so RPMS off disks 3 and 4 and install. Very easy.
I am a home user and use my pc to surf internet, play music, movies, composing and many other daily use things and I stop all serves in "system-config-services". And still my FC2 is running excellently and I feel no problem.
I get battered on a daily basis from alot of my friends in the linux community about using fedora due to the slow kernels that they are posting which really didn't bother me until I tried a new kernel. I went to linux-militia.net just looking for some doom3 how to's and found a kernel they have posted on the front page. I figured I would just give it a try and I will be damned but that kernel literly cut my compile times in half and added about 30 fps in my games. I suggest everyone give it a try. Being not the best at linux I had a admin give me steps on how to do this. They are posting a how to tonight to do this in fedora I really urge you guys to give it a try and see the performance increase. Its really nutty how much faster it is.Its called the ck performance kernel you will find it and the how to in the upper left hand of the site. www.linux-militia.net

The thing to remember about Kernels is the ones you get from Fedora are made so basically everyone can use them. This means that they are loaded up with crap you in particular may not need. They have compatibility in mind...not performance. There are plenty other kernel choices out there which you would probably be much better off with then the Redora kernels. It's just nice for newbies IMHO because atleast they have a pretty much guarenteed working kernel to go back on if they screw up their custom kernel.
exactly. My group has tried a ton of kernels but this one seems to be pushing out way better results then all the rest. Thats why we wrote a easy how to so even newbs can get good performance out of their box. As for the loki installers there is alot of people in the irc room connected with our groups site that know and run all of that. The info is posted at www.linux-militia.net
