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.

First course of action i took was to veriffy the Project key was installed:
rpm -q gpg-pubkey-6b8d79e6-3f49313d
it was not installed. So then i did:
rpm --import /usr/share/rhn/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora
i then got both:
fedora-release-3-8.i386.rpm AND yum-2.1.11-3.noarch.rpm
rpm -Uvh --force fedora-release-3-8.i386.rpm yum-2.1.11-3.noarch.rpm
which said yum was installed 50% and fedora release 100%
i then said : yum upgrade
This did not work, so i used up2date -u yum, to upgrade YUM.
THen tried again, and still got the the same error, the error is:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/use/bin/yum", line 6, in ?
File "/usr/share/yum-cli/yummain.py", line 23, in ?
ImportError: No module named yum
What does this mean??? Any help is so much appretitated . THanks so much!!
It was wrong to --force upgrade yum. You must have very good before --force makes sense and doesn't break something. For instance, remember that --force implies --replacefiles, so it can overwrite existing files which belong to other packages you don't want to disturb.
But the real problem is, FC1 comes with Python 2.2, while FC3 comes with Python 2.3. When running FC3 yum in FC1, it won't find its own Python module.
thanks for the site, i have tried it. I have built my problem bigger now. THis is my first time trying to update my system. I am supposidly now running FC3 on the newest 2.6 kernel. I have tried many things for yum, but with every use i get an import error, that there is no nodule name yum.
I then decided to try to clean install, downloaed and burned the new ISO. Put in the first cd, and does not boot. When the new system boots. the cdrom drive is not loaded, no module or anything.
Is there someway i can just clean this out, and start fresh??
hey, i downloaded the ISO from linuxiso.org.
I downloaded them to my windows machine, then burnt each disk.
I think my problem is however, that my newly upgraded FC3 does not load the cdrom drive module. SO i get no response from the cdrom drive when i put the first disk ISO and start the machine. I have tried to reboot into my old kernel, but of course, my mouse does not work in the old kernel, haha, figures.
