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 have a cluster consists of 4 computers..These computers were working well before 2 months,and for last 2 months they were switched off .
When I switched them on again they (all) refuse the password and I get "unable to authenticate the user" every time I try to login to any one of them ...!!
I used the terminal (alt+ctrl+F2) to make sure that the password is correct and it was ..!!
Then I added new user and it couldn't authenticate the new user too..!
So, Where is the problem ?
What I have to do to be able to login again ??
So you are having issues logging into the GUI because you can login to the terminal.
Are you receiving an error when you try to login to the GUI?
Which X environment are you using?
Have you tried to reinstall the X environment?
What about deleting the x config files for the user accounts that are unable to login? For gnome this should be /home/<username>/.gconf and for KDE it will be stored in /home/<username>/.kde/share/config/
Have you perhaps done a yum update or even a yum upgrade recently? I believe that a recent change in Fedora 12 blocks GUI logins for the root account and if you have performed any updates this maybe the reason.
