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.

After leaving linux for 4 months, the withdrawal symptoms has hit me. This time, I opted for Fedora Core 2. I have been using SuSE before, and KDE, so this Gnome thing for me is quite new. I think I have gotten the hang of it, but there are a few things that I cannot manage to sort out on my own or by searching through the forums so I started a new topic.
1) Is it possible to use the gnome file browser as the default action when I double click a folder? I can't find anything in the preferences bit in the main menu, nor did I have enough courage to try and use a new default action for folders when I double click them.
2) Sound hotkey - I managed to map my laptop sound up and down buttons to Gnome, but when I turn it up and down it makes no difference.
Thanks guys and girls! and I apologize if I reposted something.

If you're seeing the volume popup when you press the buttons but your volume isn't changing then you're out of luck. This is a bug in the gnome volume keys handling: it changes the "volume" channel of your sound device, this isn't always the channel you want.

I don't understand what you mean. What happens at the moment when you double click a folder?
