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 am using fedora 11, and in a previous thread I was told how to use the top command in the terminal, but I must have done something b/c now my processor is acting really strange and maxing out some of my cores when nothing else is running in the background! Can any of you guys help? I shall place the top results now. Thank you for your time!
start TOP & press K ,when you do that it would ask you PID to KILL,enter the PID ( process ID ) you see hit enter and it would ask you for the signal to send ,by default it would select 15 ,select what ever you want 9 or 15 and hit enter.
Or you can even do ps -ef | grep -i "firefox" and then get the PID and kill it with killall command
