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.

Selinux screws up everything I try to do on my FC4 install. So I just automatically kill it (setenforce 0) every bootup. I'm all for security but not for installing barbed wire and booby traps in your own kitchen where you actually cook.
At one time there was a program I could run from the Desktop menu that was Desktop->System Settings->Security Level. It would ask for the root password, and upon validating it would let you mess with the firewall and Selinux. The menu option is still there but now when I go to run it it asks for the root password like before, when I type it in, the authentication screen disappears and then nothing happens. Any idea why this happens or what to do about it?
And I have another wierdness that has been there since I installed this: When you download something to the desktop folder then open the desktop folder in GUI view, none of the files that are there show up. If you open a terminal window and cd to Desktop, then everything is there just fine, but it's highly annoying. How can I fix this?
And finally I thought it would be a snap to install Samba on this and share the printer with my windoze laptop. When I first tried it I didn't know anything about seliunx so that's what was probably screwing me up. And I see that there are some posts on it here so I will read them but if you have any advice to offer on that subject as well I'd appreciate it.
Because of all this crap plus it was running evil slow and I had to install extra memory to stop it from crashing and to make it run at an acceptable speed, on the same box where my old RedHat ran just fine..... I really don't like FC4 very much and will probably shift to Ubuntu in the not too distant future
