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.

Setting up my two boxes on the a local network with a router.
A FC5-64 and FC4-i386 boxes, from my i386 box, using KDE Konqueror, in the Location box entering: fish://root@FC5-64 and typing in password for root@FC5-64, allows me to go into
root of FC5-64 box and edit changes in files,etc. Fish in kde uses ssh to connect to remote boxes.
But the most unique feature is to Edit in a crashed Linux box.
I put my #1 install cd into the FC5-x86_64 and did a "linux rescue" on cd and
followed instructions to do a linux rescue, and doing a Network enable and after doing the chroot /mnt/sysimage and then doing a /sbin/service sshd start, then starting fish://root@FC5-64 in the i386 box, I was able to edit problems in the crashed x86_64 box.
Neat huh!!! , only drawback to this is you better hope you can get a network and sshd connection.
I had my i386 box /etc/hosts, setup as;
# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.
127.0.0.1 FC4-i386 localhost.localdomain localhost
And similar setup in my x86_64 /etc/hosts file for the i386 box .
i thought this may be a good tip for future use, if you got a network.
I'm sure you can add to this brillant discovery of mine.
