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'm running 2.6.17-1.2157_FC5 and I recently noticed that there is an update for firefox (188.8.131.52), however I can't seem to update for some reason. I have the automatic update set within firefox, and I found out that I can't manually update firefox unless I am in root. I decided to login as root (through the GUI not the terminal) and manually check for updates, but a dialog box within firefox said that no updates are available. I also checked the update history in firefox and no updates were installed. I did some research and can't find the answer to my problem.
I did read some forums on this site and the mozilla site, it seems that some people are having problems once the update is installed.
I have a laptop running Windows XP with firefox installed and it updated a few hours ago automatically, so I'm pretty sure that it is not the firewall in my router.
Am I going to have uninstall the previous version of firefox (184.108.40.206) and install the updated version (220.127.116.11)? Does anybody have any other ideas so that I can just update without uninstalling the previous version?
If you have the ff rpm installed then you will have to update via yum. The repositories lag a few days, but should be ready by early next week. If you prefer, you can uninstall the rpm package and install ff from the mozilla site.
