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 just entered this linux forums and I have questions with you guys. Please be aware that I'm still noob in linux. Here we go.
I have a VMWare with an image of fc6. I want to install these files in this machine and Ijust dont know how to do it. I got these files as I searched over the net about openwsman. Because I planned to install openwsman in this machine.
By the way, before installing programs by building source code from tarballs, you should look in your package manager to see if there is a pre-built version to install. This is much easier and faster, and you don't have to install all the compiler tool chain.
Building from source is an option, but if you're new to Linux and don't have development experience, you should always prefer installing using pre-built packages where possible.
Of the three things you listed, at least subversion is in the standard repositories for most distros.
I just did a test install of Fedora 6 in a VM and I can find packages for both sblim and subversion in the package manager. I didn't add any extra repositories either, so with these you might find one for the other as well...
I just looked in the package manager from the add remove programs entry in the applications menu. I used the search feature in the program which comes up. I think there are several tabs. IIRC one has lists of popular packages, and another provides a search feature. I have deleted Fedora now so I cannot give more precise instructions.
