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 have just finished installing fedora 17 off a live cd but, after finishing the set up, i reboot and selected the system and everything was fine until i came to the desktop, i didnt even have a chance to login or anything, just at the desktop but theres no icons no nothing to be found and the only way i was able to find my cursor was bringing it to the right and then it appeared on screen, does anybody know how to fix this?
Try using your Ubuntu distro to download the LiveCd of Fedora 17 and use Brasero to burn the ISO image to the new CD/DVD. Depending on which Desktop Envirenment in Fedora did you choose; (could be an issue graphically) KDE, Gnome, or XFCE?
