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.

And if you need to enter password to be able to enter in to the single user mode,press any key when you see "booting Fedora",then when you see "kernel 2.x.x.x." press 'e' and apend single init=/bin/bash to that kernel line,press 'enter' then 'b'.Then you will be root.Change password as already suggested.
alan_ri you do know many people are going to try that fork bomb in your sig ???
John VV,the reason why I put it there is to try to prevent people doing so if they will ever be instructed to do so.I already got some messages in my PM inbox from some members asking me what is it,but I will remove it from my sig because it's maybe better that people don't know about it.Thanks for your feedback. Btw,I've visited your site,it's beautiful.I'm also interested in all about space,it's part of my profession too,so I've been learning a lot about it...
Not sure if fedora adds first user in sudo group and if it asks for user's password upon invocation (debian/ubuntu way) or root's (suse way). Assumging it works with debian/ubuntu way root can be logged on and password can be changed using:
> sudo su
Anyone, correct me if I'm wrong. Don't have fedora box right now to prove my point :-)
