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.

Any idea where I can get a reliable torrent for Fedora Core 4?
It seems as though the official Fedora website is not hosting them anymore (?)
Anyway, if anyone has a good link, it would be much appreciated
They are not offering FC 4 because it has not been supported for a long time. Is there some reason that you need FC 4 and not a supported version of Fedora or another distro? I would never use an unsupported distro.
As for a torrent, I don't think that exists as there is no demand for FC 4.

Yes, the only reason to use a torrent is so that everyone that downloads also uploads and it puts less of a burden on the hosting system. If only you are using the torrent, it actually is slower. It looks like this site still has it, but I'd really recommend 8 instead.
That's a good idea. Anything broken in FC 4 will stay broken, security vulnerabilities will not be fixed, hardware will become increasingly incompatible. You'd probably be doing a lot of compiling if you went that route.
