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.

Did you do a clean install of F15? if so, did you make sure the disk image was correct and that the installation went as planned?
If not how did you downgrade to 15?
what error message(s) are you getting?
Did you need to install any video drivers for your previous fedora 15 installation?
I just installed the Xfce spin and it's working great. Wi-fi worked right away, everything hapy for now...still would like to know what to do when encountering the dreaded Ctrl-D or root password prompt.
Been using Fedora 16 Xfce Spin and it's freaking great. If it doesn't crash and burn in the next couple days I'll come back and mark this thread as solved. Since 15 worked fine before, I reckon it was a corrupt ISO that hosed my reinstall.
This is better -- running 16 Xfce spin for the last 24 hrs. The desktop is fast and looks great, performance is excellent on this old laptop. Added Filezilla, Libreoffice writer & calc, yumex, gedit, mpeg support, audacity-nonfree and kTorrent.
I tried manual hibernation yesterday and everything came back to life just fine. Today I'll try setting the lid-closing behavior to hibernation.
The Fedora 16 Xfce spin rocks! I prefer it to regular Fedora 15 & 16. Thread solved, thanks. If anyone can tell me about the Ctrl-D screen and what can be done (if anything) when it happens, please do.
