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.

My cutting and pasting skills are somewhat limited in linux (a.k.a. I can't do it), xclip is not available on my machine, presumably until I can get online again, fortunately my typing skills are pretty OK. This is a very new experience for me, I am 5 weeks into my first Linux Administration class, thanks for your help.
I apologize for my ignorance here, it's not that I haven't tried -
I am trying to cut from tty2 and paste into open office on one computer (FC2), so i can save to USB and re-open on my current online computer (Win7). I can't get it done, can't find it online. This is humiliating (and time consuming).
Please tell me i can cut and paste from a terminal to something I can transfer over to my functioning computer.
I managed to get online w/ FC2 so I can yum install xclip on this box, noticed that one thing that helps me get online is probing the mac address, the address doesn't change, but something in the process allows me to get online - if I can get xclip to work I'll post the info you requested.
i have decided that it takes less time to type the output of cli into a word doc than trying to figure out how to cut and paste from a terminal session in fc2, I am only using this distro because it is the one that came with my textbook, and all of the labs involve this distro. i don't know what 'running OO from text terminal" means or what 'nano' does. I'm taking 4 classes and working fulltime. I am thankful for this .org because if i have questions this community is 100times more responsive than my online teacher, and much more aware. I have fc15 installed on another box and have no issues with networking...identical hardware. When a lab starts with "insert floppy disk" you gotta wonder about the caliber of the course you are learning... I just hope my dumb questions dont blacklist me from the site. I have a 4.0 after my first 5 weeks and I still don't know how to cut and paste. Sad. i'm not dumb.
All I really want is my cert, suppose struggling with legacy distros is the way to do it.

fedora 2 is SO OLD and unsupported that MOST if not ALL new hardware IS NOT SUPPORTED by it
fedora 2 hit End Of Life BEFORE the new hardware was designed or manufactured
fedora 2 hit EoL on July 13 2005 so any newer hardware IS NOT SUPPORTED
think of it this way
try to install windows 98 on a MODERN laptop or a desktop with a i5 cpu
Thank you so much for the validation that i am using a legacy distro that is not supported. I will cite this post as an example to the college i am paying for and attending that they are so far behind the times that their expectations are unreal, irrelevant, and impossible. My ideal of linux so far is far removed from my experience of linux. Trying to make FC2 work in this environmnent is detrimental to my health.
A good example for a "legacy" distro would be
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ( RHEL) 3 and RHEL4
RHEL3 is End of life BUT there is still some added "extra" long term support until 2013
RHEL 4 users SHOULD be thinking of moving to 5 or 6
but a good example of a DEAD (buried 6 ft under ) is fedora 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12 .fedora 13 just hit "eol" a few months ago
Fedora though is a "special case" it is a FAST a VERY fast "Research and Development" distro
with a new and sometimes VERY different version EVERY 6 MONTHS. and a 13 month life cycle NOT good for teaching or in a class or on a production server .You should NEVER see fedora running a production server .
if you do that might be legally criminal .
