First, Fedora 12 is outdated...the latest is 13.

And what tutorials do you want?? There's lots of different things to learn. First place you should look is the Fedora website and read their docs. Then try Google to fill in the blanks.

You can download the most recent version of Fedora here if you are interested.
http://fedoraproject.org/get-fedora

The Fedora forums have quite a bit of info on all sorts of topics. You can also find quite a bit of good info right here in this very forum!

all of the above
and stressing that fedora is a VERY fast development distro
14 will be out in about 1 month .then 30 DAYS after that fedora 12 hits " end of Life"
"E of L" means NO SUPPORT, no updates, no nothing -- it is dead .

so every 6 months you really do need to do a fresh clean install of the NEW version

or risk having to fix a few things and use " preupgrade" to the next version
READ and REREAD the fedora docs
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/index.html
the wiki can help
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FWN
but the forum is VERY helpful
http://www.fedoraforum.org/
register there and read and ask questions
also DangerMouse has a nice page
http://www.dnmouse.org/
and Mjmwired has a very nice "quick reference " page
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/

Actually I'd get the Fedora 14 and simply boot to the live cd. Try it. Play with it. You will learn much just from that.

One good thing about fedora is that there is a ton of documentation at various sites. Red hat documentation is really the best place to start reading.
