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.

every time i try to download anything via yum or package installer i get the following errors
http://apt.atrpms.net/fedora/8/en/i386/at-stable/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404: Not Found
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: atrpms. Please verify its path and try again
I dont think i can fix this until i fix the first problem, I am using the preview of fedora 9, so when i install the final virsion it will just up my following system, so i know that the problem isn't because im using the preview of fedora 9 (alsohad the same problem with the stable version of fedora 8)
shift insert to paste the line previosly copied and hit return - wait for it to import
then (keystrokes unless in ()):
(copy the second code box starting at [ and ending with 1 using your mouse and control insert)
i<shift insert> (ie - type i then hit shift and insert to paste the code previously copied - i puts vi into insert mode)
note that hitting escape pts vi back into command mode, :wq writes changes and quits.
Let us know how you go
