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.

Back in the day, Gnome had an option for configuring it to start using something other than Nautilus. It seemed to be in the Gnome Control Center, however, that probably was back with 2.0 or possibly earlier release, so you might just be snipe hunting. I'll poke around and see if there is a way, I'd imagine there is, well, I know there is, but I imagine there is an easier way than modifying the code
Assuming Fedora Core 2, that would be GNOME 2.6. In that case, I think the file you're looking for is $HOME/.gnome2/session
Try deleting the lines that would seem to be responsible for respawning nautilus. Untested, no guarantees.
Learn to use IRC (internet relay chat), solves your problems much quicker! You've probably got XChat installed, so start that, choose Freenode as your server, and one of #fedora, #suse, #debian etc. as appropriate for a channel. (I think Debian have their own IRC server, too.)

Yeah, you're right, there is a GUI, it's called Sessions, in the control centre. On the second tab, change the setting for nautilus to "Normal", and then kill it.
