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.

i installed the latest fedora 10 preview but found that i can not log in as root. when i try it says unable to auth user. i thought i might have messed up during install so i reinstalled and still have the same issue. any ideas?
nah , nothing special. just raw install. heres another odd issue....i was testing the pre relese and had no problems installing the pre relese. However now that it has been officially relesed i downloaded the iso file burned the cd live and now i am getting a error when trying to boot the cd. and i have tried 2 times from 2 diffrent mirrors and get the same. the error is as follows
"Bug in initramfs /init detected dropping to a shell . Good Luck"
i like how it says Good Luck and gives me a glimmer of hope, LOL
Well, I have developed a disliking for gdm ever since they pulled out the themes in Fedora 9.
And when I saw that they've gotten bolder this time by blocking root, I decided to replace gdm by kdm.
Works like charm and you can log in as root...
(Statutory Warning: Spending lot of time as root is not advisable.)
