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.

Fedora Core 4 reached its end of life sometime in 2006 so there are no more upgrades or support for it from the Fedora project. This is why you are no longer able to receive any more upgrades. Fedora 8 is the latest release, so you could upgrade to that. I personally would use CentOS on an important server.
I too have an installation of fedora 6 and it no longer gets updates. But that is b/c it is unsupported and end of life. Only reason I'm sticking with it is b/c newer versions of fedora have issues with Vmware
You will only get updates for about a year after the initial release. One month after F10 is released (Nov 2008?) there will be no more updates for F8. This is why I have switched all my servers over to Centos. Centos is RHEL with the logos removed. It is binary compatible with RHEL. It is free to download and has a five year support life. Current release is 5.1. It "feels" like FC6 and is rock solid. I still run Fedora on my desktop.
