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.

2. How do I rid the magnifying glasses on the Location bar, and rid the "View as" option? This way I have more space for the address input.
To which file browser are you referring? Nuatilus (in Gnome), Konquorer (in KDE), or XFFM (in XFCE)?
I think you're talking about Nautilus, so I'm not sure, because my Gnome isn't working now. I installed FC3 the very day it came out, and yesterday, Gnome stopped functioning properly so I switched over to KDE. Quite a few things don't seem to be functioning properly in FC3, actually.
Originally posted by Cyberian I see K-applications, so I assume I am using KDE now.
I am new at using FC.
You'll see KDE apps in Gnome, as well. I'm pretty sure if you install both, FC3 uses Gnome as the default, and based on your question, I'm pretty sure you're using Gnome, since, now that I looked at it, Konqueror doesn't have a little magnifying glass near the location bar. I tried to see if I could find any way to remove those elements in Nautilus, but I can't find anyway of doing it, aside from, of course, getting the source, taking those parts out, and reinstalling it with your modified source. That's a pretty difficult thing to do, certainly beyond my understanding.
Well, if you don't mind switching to a different Desktop Environment, just start using KDE instead. When you log in, click on Sessions, and select KDE, instead of Gnome. Of course, you'll have to get used to a different layout, and new utilities, but it's very customizable.
But if you want to continue using Gnome, and use Konqueror for a file manager, I don't know if there's any way to change the default, but you could just create a shortcut to "konqueror ~". By adding the ~, it'll open straight to your home folder, instead of a web page, since Konqueror's also a web browser.
