Why have you installed Fedora core 2 ?
It is nearly forgotten, it is not supported, there are no updates available.
Try installing a newer version.
We could spend hours getting it to work and then all you would have is an out of date system full of bugs.
Unfortunately this is the version that is being used in the study program that i am busy with, which is merely an intro to Linux. So the entire module covered is based on version 2. Could anybody help me?
If your course is teaching basic linux, then using a later version will not matter. Basic things haven't changed.
Besides which, learning old things means you have to relearn after the course is finished.
Get a live cd of a later version, and try some of your course on it. If you want to learn, you will have to do it sooner or later, so if the course asks you to do something you can't find on FC2, you will have to find a way to do the same thing on your newer version. You will have to anyway later.
The main things that have changed are the appearance and a few filesystem and security systems. They will not be taught in a basic intro to linux course.
Choose any live cd with gnome on fedora and you'll be fine.
