Fedora isn't a Linux program, it is one of hundreds of different Linux operating systems. You can start by googling Fedora and find numerous sites with information on it. If you have something specific, ask a specific question. Be ahead of the game at what?

What do you mean with "setup a directory"? Please be more specific with what you want to achieve and what you already tried.

Do you try to do that with your file-manager? Or do you use the command line? What have you tried already and what is not working?

Hi,

do you mean something like this?
Code:
mkdir -p "~/Documents/business reports"
mkdir -p "~/Documents/rtf"
mkdir -p "~/Documents/data"
The above commands will simply create directories in your home folder.

And what do you mean with "Linux+"?
