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.

My instructor at school had downloaded fedora on my external hard drive. His download was a 32 bit, so I could still load on my 64 bit at home. This would allow me to open guest on both computers. However, circumstances with the login occurred, and I have to re install. I am trying to find the exact same thing that he had (he is not available for me to use the cd). All I have is the kernel, as this was all that would show. I want to make sure I download the correct version, so I can continue to use the guest on the 32 and 64 bit machines.
in my guest, I clicked on Virtual Machine> Install VmWare Tools. Now I had the iso image on my desktop, which now is a cd saying "VMware Tools" I am unsure what to do since it is empty. I did locate this in cl:
[me@lhocalhost media]$ ls
I have already installed the Fedora 14 live iso. I have also tried to install vmware tools, as the icon on the desktop shows, however, when I click it, it is just an empty folder. This is when I clicked install vmware tools from the top of the guest. Even after the "disc icon" showed up on my desktop, when you look at the menu on the top of the guest, it says "cancel vmware tools". Does this mean it is not installed or can't install?
I am doing the update yum install, and after when I am supposed to find vmware 2.xxxxx, is where i get lost. Where is this file? Do I have to manually download it? Is there a step by step guide for this process? I am very new, and it would be very helpful. Thanks
