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.

1: XCD Roast CD Writer tries to start but then goes away.
2: Random Screen Savers are just a blank screen, but the rest seems to work.
3: Yum Extender when you check Livna-Testing and click refresh it says livna-testing and hangs at 30% complete.
1. Use the built-in Nautilus CD/DVD writer. You don't need a separate application, unless you are creating a video DVD (then use growisofs). If you want a separate application, use k3b (just "yum install" it).
2. Do you have a 3D video driver? Some of the screensavers are 3D, but without a suitable driver, you can't use them.
3. Does yum have the same problem? Livna has been recovering from a server failure. There may still be some issues.
They changed the /proc tree in latest kernel (not really Red Hat's fault, but they use it as default, so...) ip_conntrack is now nf_conntrack which breaks Firestarter, my favorite iptables configuration utility.
Java works for me under Fedora 7 with Firefox 220.127.116.11. Check out how I got it working: http://www.johnson.homelinux.net/index.php/Java_6
If you look around my Wiki (see my sig) there's more personal how-to's. This stuff works for me and *should* work for you, but no guarantees. Might help some of you though.
