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.

There is a ksh package so trying "yum install ksh" might work without having to search for it. There is an older ksh package called pdksh so typing "yum install pdksh" might work. Not sure which is in the F9 repositories.
By the way - my main reason for wanting ksh after first starting to work on Linux was that I didn't like the way bash command history worked. Later I realized you can make it work like ksh simply by typing "set -o vi". If that is your reason for wanting it you might want to try that.
Thanks for all the help. I found an RPM for korn shell at http://chi-10g-1-mirror.fastsoft.net...6/os/Packages/. The RPM file is ksh-20080202-1.fc9.i386.rpm. I downloaded the file and then, as root, I ran `rpm -i ksh-20080202-1.fc9.i386.rpm` and it seems to have worked. Now I see the korn shell in the /bin directory (/bin/ksh).
