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.

I am running Fedora Core 6. I keep my system up to date by installing all updates as Red Hat notifies me. My last update contained cups updates. Now when I try to print I get this message when the job queues:
This happens no matter what application I am printing from. My printer is a EPSON STYLUS CX6600
I tried using yum to update both cups and hal, thinking that maybe I had an error on the last update. However yum tells me there are no updates available.
Is there any way to back out of the last update? Has anyone else noticed this problem? Does anyone have any idea how I can work around this?
The problem was solved by going to Printer Administration, deleting the printer, and reinstalling it. I was told, on a different forum, that this is a common problem with Epson printers. DOn't know if that's true, but this worked for me.
