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 don't know nothing about programming and not much about linux os.
I have now Fedora 12 and Gnome.
I have 3 websites to maintain: ( Finnish Pikavippi sites ) pikavippi vippi pikalainat
I'd like to have a good editor, can you recomend any ?
Suitable to Gnome?
Need to code PHP and HTML
Regards: Me... sorry I'm dumb
Many editors, but what's 'good' to one person is very subjective. I used Anjuta, but have moved to kdevelop, which I like better. Eric and Bluefish are two others I've used, but try them all, and see which you like better.
"Komodo" seems like a good editor to me. For PHP, it has command completion and function definition pop-ups. For HTML, it has some similar functions, but I must admit that I do very little in HTML direct. "Nedit" is very programmable with syntax highlighting and stuff like that. So, it can be expanded pretty easily. There are some good "HTML editors" which I think can handle PHP also (ex. bluefish). I've used it sometimes, but prefer other (more basic) editors.
I might as well cast my vote in the Vi/Emacs war... Vi! Once you have a grasp on it's commands it's a very powerful editor. (just kidding about the war part... both are pretty good editors)
But, in this case, I'm thinking an editor more like Komodo or bluefish.
"gedit" is a good GUI editor. As is KWrite and Kate, but they are too glitchy and unstable for me. All three have syntax highlighting, but Kate and Kwrite have highlighting for more rare languages available.
As for my position on Emacs vs. vi, I can't say I think both are great but I prefer vi. Why use an editor that emulates everything your underlying OS can do and requires you to contort your fingers in funny ways just to move the cursor (Emacs)? I might use vi more, but I am learning the Dvorak keyboard and vi's motion keys would all be screwed up.
