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 was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction to find information on the location and names of the major configuration files for fedora core2.
What I'm trying to do is take copies of the configuration files so that they can be stored somewhere else and in the event of losing the box be able to copy these files back over a base installation in order to minimise the downtime.
The box is only being used for DNS and Sendmail and no graphical interface has been set up. The main area that I'm interested in is the network configuration.
If what I'm trying to do is not feasable then please let me know and I will use webmin to pick out the information I will need to manually configure the box.
Thanks in advance for any information that you may be able to give me.
