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 am using Fedora Server 9 on a laptop and it hs a been setup as per the perfect server setuo on the fedora site.
I have yummed xfce but can someone let me know how to run it.
Secondly I can get to the homepage of the apache webserver from another laptop. But I have used filezilla to try and get ftp access using the root user and the root user password but it will not connect.
Ran startxcfe4 and got the following error msg - (
EE)Failed to load module "intel" (module does not exist,0)
EE)No Drivers available
Fatal server error:
no screens found
xinit: Connection refused (errno 111): unable to connect to X server
xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.
Hopefully this will mean something to some one.
Did you try to start xfce4 as root? That might at least explain the "unable to connect to X server" part. I have no experience with Fedora but there are distros that, by default, doesn't allow root to a graphic environment.
