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.

We have migrated our application from SCO/Unix to Linux. We would like to add 3D Rendering to our application, however being new to the Linux World we do not know what 3D Rendering Packages would work best with Fedora and Unbuntu.
3Delight is a commercial Renderman compliant 3d renderer. Aqsis, Yafray and RenderPixie all mentioned above are also Renderman compliant. Of course there is Renderman itself, although that would probably be overkill.
EDIT Another free but not (presently) GPL 3d renderer is the venerable raytracer POVRay

You'll have to spend a little time at it but if you search the net for Linux CAD packages you will find a fair number of comprehensive programs. I found one from Italy, free, that was almost as deep as AutoCad. Sorry, for the site but I found it through search so there is stuff out there.
