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 want to compile a "hello world" program written in C, the output I expeced was the text "hello world". I got no idea how to do it. I saw some others do it in school's computer, they run it in a place like dos and type some command line and the text "hello world" is displayed. I want to know what should I do if I am using fedora 3, and how can I get to that "dos" mode to do it? So new to linux, any helps are apprecated.
