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.

Help. I have an AMD_64 dual core processor with 4 gig memory on it. I am trying to set this up as an X-windows box for both computational and graphical scientific calculations. The MB has NVIDIA components (sound card/ethernet). Oh yes, I also have an NVIDIA Quadro FX1400 video card.
I installed FC5, then did an update. I did not read this forum thoroughly befor proceeding (my bad), and so I went on to update my kernel (yum), then install the nvidia propriatary video drivers (from the nvidia site). After doing this, my X-windows worked (tested using software that I have). First time for that (as it took me several days to get to that point as I'm new to linux, but not new to unix).
Now, once my x-windows started working, my network stopped. I'm thinking that my nvidia driver did something to the other components on the motherboard (some sort of conflict, I don't have a clue). I can no longer connect to the network no matter what I do. I have no idea how to proceed here, since I really can't do anything without the network.
I went as far as installing a second ethernet card in the machine with no luck. it was labeled as eth1, and I addressed it accordingly.
I think if I started again it may be easiest, but I do have a lot of time invested here, so I'd be willing to stick with it if somebody has a clue on how to proceed.
how do I remove the kernel and get the new one with no network? I can burn to cd on a pc and use that, so I can get files on, I just need to know how/where to get the kernel and then how to remove/install.
Yes, I did do this today, so I do have the 2.6.16-1.2107_FC5 kernel.
