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 just recently reinstalled my Fedora Core 1 machine and I spent nearly the whole day running up2date to make sure that I have all of the most up to date software and everything, and then partway through it came up with an error that said the GPG signature was wrong and that the package was most likely corrupted or had been tampered with. I didn't think much about it and said that it was all right to continue. Then when it came time to start installing the packages, it came up with a fatal rpm installation error on httpd. Now when I boot up, it won't connect to the network, X doesn't work at all, and I'm sure that there are more things that I'm not listing that don't work anymore. I really want this system to work... Any suggestions? The specs on my machine are as follows:
P3 850 MHz
512 MB pc133 ram
2 hard drives, both Maxtor 7200 RPM, one is 30 GB, the other is 80 GB.
(26 some gb for /
1 gb for swap
100 mb for boot
80 gb for /home)
GeForce4 MX440SE Video card configured for dual monitors
TDK 24x10x40x CD burner
16x DVD-ROM Drive
I don't remember the type of network card, but I think that it doesn't matter, it worked before this happened.
Before all of this happened, I was able to run everything that I wanted, the network worked, I had it booting to runlevel 3 instead of 5 like fedora does by default, and I hadn't really installed that much on it. I'm assuming that maybe there were some bad RPMs that I downloaded that screwed my system over. I have all of my data backed up, so reformatting and starting new is a possibility. I would like to get this thing working again without reformatting if at all possible. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks all (you've been a great help up to this point).
