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.

Hi. This newbie is looking for dialup online access from an ISP for FC4 for around the same $10/month that I'm paying now using Netzero/W2k. Netzero supports Linspire distribution with a netzero.deb download. I downloaded this, but I'm not convinced that this will work for my FC4 distribution. If not, what other ISPs are out there? I'm trying to avoid AOL and Verizon, if at all possible. Bottom line is, again, that I'd like to have unlimited online access for about the $10 / month that I'm paying now.
Actually you could use the "alien" package to convert the .deb file to an rpm file.
Otherwise Netzero should still work with linux (It did when I was using it) you just have to set everything up manually. And if you still want another ISP here's one for $5.95 a month (unlimited access)
forgive my ignorance, but unless it's already in fedora, i can't download, b/c of no internet access. whatever i download, has to be on my windows work machine (fast DL) and then transport via flashdrive to my home windows box, switch over to linux and access the windows drives. ....until i get internet access.
