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.

I can't answer this, I also have to go after this post. But it would be helpful if you said what Distro you are using so the next person to see this can offer you some help. With out that it would be hard to answer your post.
i'm unable to install my downloaded codecs into my system will u pls help
What exactly have you done to try to install the codecs. You really don't give enough info for anyone to help you. Please read the Sticky at the top of this forum which will help you to ask better questions.
Are you a real newbie? IMO,Fedora is probably not a distro for a novice Linux user,UNLESS you have a real Linux "pro" as your friend and ready to guide! Even that would be a thin reed to lean on! Zegenie studios have an easy little test with relevant questions for the most novice Linux user. Answer each question honestly and it will point you to what suits your Linux "skills" the most". I'll give you the link : http://www.zegeniestudios.net/ldc/
Answer the questions honestly and it will suggest which "distro" suits you best!I am sorry, but IMO,you may have started on the wrong foot! No offense please! I have taken the test and i was advised 4-5 Linux flavors, and i plumped for ubuntu10.10. Felt that sometimes it's wise to let others decide for you! Best wishes! With the right approach and prep., you will LOVE Linux!
