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.

Has anyone got Skype working under Fed 12? I download the rpm from Skype.com, it installs, but doesn't work. I get 'could not launch Skype, failed to execute child process "skype", (no such file or directory)'
Although I don't use Skype I've installed the Fedora 10 package in the past. Seemed to work in as much as I could run the program, as I recall, from the command line. Maybe there was a menu entry. Can't recall.
Seems to be working on my fedora12 machine. It comes up with my contacts, and shows who's on line.
I have Beta version 188.8.131.52 installed.
I did it by following the guide on source forge for "the perfect fedora12 desktop"
It said to add this repo. Then just use the software installer to install skype.
Well, the error seemed to be because of an excruciatingly slow connection. I ran the command yum install skype several times, until it had the whole package. It is installed, and I have exactly the same problem.
bash: /usr/bin/skype: /lib/ld-linux.so.2: bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory
