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.

Most major Linux distributions, Fedora included, enable the firewall by default. You will need to port forward on your router if you need access from the outside (for example if the PS3 is in the DMZ).
Yes, you can add the path via command line, or if the web server is enabled, you can connect to http://localhost:49200/, and perform the addition by clicking on the '+' next to a directory in the filesystem, or the circled '+' to add the directory as an autoscan directory (self updating on file creation).
