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.

Ok, I have tried everything possible with my install of FC4 to get True type fonts looking good, So atm i am installing a completely new fresh copy on my linux box, so could someone pleas tell me how to get True Type fonts working with a new install of FC4, everything i need to donwload and that, becuase what im after is to use Tahoma as my main GUI font in KDE, and for it to look like it does in windows, because it kept looking all sharp and squashed.
So the install is nearly complete now, and any help will be aprecciated!
Download the fonts or get them from MS windows. Make a directory in /usr/share/fonts called msttf. Copy the truetype fonts there and do "mkfontdir" and "mkfontscale" in that directory (/usr/share/fonts/msttf). Log out and in again and your fonts will be ready for use. If you use GNOME, you may need to copy the fonts to ~/.fonts as well.
Download the font, open up Nautilus, do fonts: in the location bar and drag and drop fonts into there. Can't remember if you need to restart X to see them, I don't think so.
Open up Control Centre (kcontrol) - go tho the Fonts section under Appearance and Themes - check the anti-alias box. Click on Configure and check Use Sub-Pixel Hinting and use Greyscale with a medium rating.
