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 installed FC11 (x86_64) absolutely love it such a change from FC8... I actually for the second time in my experimenting with Linux distros got WINE to work and it works BEAUTIMUSLY!!!
HOWEVER, my main grump is this: I can log into my user account from the login screen (the gui), but I have no listing for 'root' to log in and change the system as root without having to go into the system as 'user'
and use only the cmdline. As user I cannot change the permissions or view files owned by root and edit or move etc,.. is this a specific design change in FC11 -64? Or is it I am missing a point here?
This also precludes me from a lot of admin access... it denies me entry even as 'root' in the cmdline.
Suggestions... any reply of substance would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. AND it is a bit 'buggy' in the FCE4 dept. as well.
root login in gui environment is not permitted, but you can
use su or su -c '<command>' for root powers in CLI
I can understand the security of such.a config. AND cmd line is better than no line!
Thank you for the reply Amani, maybe I will get this config'd before too long.
Beats the alternative... (WinXPpro...)
I guess it helps to read the instructions first... eh?
I have been doing so much research in various areas of work I do that I was just a bit burned out on reading, and thinking. Thank you so much for your input.
