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.

how can i install from my hard disk
how can i update from fc6 to f7
i downloaded the kde live cd using torrent from www.fedoraproject.org but the sha1sum didn't match
so i want to know the best way to download it safely without ant damage
torrents really are the best way to go. I have never had any problems. they have some sort of checksum thing built in them. (At least that is from what I have heard) But to install from an image on the hard drive:
I've been trying to install from a DVD image on my hard drive as described above and CANNOT get it to work. Every time I get as far as telling it where to find the DVD image, as soon as I hit <Enter> it dies with (I think) "Install exited abnormally [1/1]" followed by a number of other shutdown-type messages, after which it tells me I can now reboot my system.
FWIW, I also tried to install off of the 'net, and it told me that I had a problem with one of my devices; I think that it was that some one or another of my partitions ("swap", I think) didn't have a label. I found a reference to this in some of the installation instruction files, but I can't find out how to put a label on said partition -- frustrating, since up until now I've been running just fine without a label.
