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.

For a server I would not go with Fedora. The support life of Fedora is only a little over one year, then no more updates of any kind. Centos is RHEL with the logos removed. It has a Seven year support life. Centos is free to download and update. Centos is binary compatible with RHEL.
eh... does anyone know? I checked out those links, but that just explains where to order webhosting and how to add drives....
And if Fedora 8 or 9 is not supported by cpanel, I think I'm going to go ahead and go with CentOs 5.1 instead.
...the only thing that makes me get Fedora instead of Centos is.. well, it's newer. It seems like CentOs has been out for a while and doesn't have the latest things? Correct me if I'm wrong please. I've just been using Fedora for a while. My first server 4 years ago was CentOS 4.0, but it crashed about twice a month.
So... does any1 know if Fedora 8 or 9 is supported?
Centos/RHEL is designed to be stable. Fedora is a development distro. So Fedora will always have newer stuff than RHEL/Centos, but for a server there are almost no advantages in running Fedora. While desktop related things are rapidly changing, the server arena is pretty well developed.
I have to agree with lazlow - given the support lifetime of F9, you'll be doing a complete rebuild of your server in a year. Sounds fine now, but once you've tweaked the thing, the last thing you'll want to do is start again.
It's not a matter of choosing one over the other - I use CentOS for servers and both Fedora and CentOS for desktops/laptops.
Another issue worth considering is that with Fedora being bleeding edge, you'll get some weird issues, like repos being stuffed every once in a while. Fine for a desktop, but not for your server. You'll also find that there are many more updates on a Fedora box, I assume because the team issue updates whenever the relevant package is updated, not just when it's "necessary".
Edit - and don't let anyone tell you can can just update F9 to F10. Works sometimes.
