Fedora guide for Debian users?

I've not used Fedora since FC2, but I've been asked to look after a box running FC5 with almost immediate effect.

I know Debian pretty well, and I was wondering if there's any simple 'Fedora for Debian users' guides that you know of, so I can stop stumbling about and start being useful?

Don't know of a guide like that, but since redhat-style administration is similar from distro to distro, look at the RHEL4/5 documentation.


RHEL4.5 System Administration Guide

RHEL5.0 Deployment Guide

If you want a book to look at, then look at:

"Fedora (version #) and Red Hat Enterprise Linux" by Christopher Negus (Wiley)

"Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Administration Unleashed" by Tammy Fox (SAMS)

Each for US$33 @

The Negus book is very popular, but is somewhat simplistic. The Fox book tends to present at a slightly higher level of understanding and is very useful when you want to read a second explanation of something.

For reference, RHEL4 is similar to FC3 and RHEL5 is similar to FC6.
