Talking Newbie asking help


Hiya, I've just joined forum due to installing Fedora 3 yesterday. Still trying to understand it but going well. Couple of questions, Does anyone know of a good site that has a kinda begginers guide to linux (or fedora) that would help me understand as I'm gonna attempt to convert from windows. Also more specific I attempted to install Nvidia driver eariler and followed instructions but when it ran it said I was still in a "x server". What does this mean and how can i run the install prog. Thanks alot in advance!!!!

My first Linux book was "Linux for Dummies". Written simple, and easy to understand. Above all, stay away from any books with "Learn Linux in 24 hours". That isn't going to happen! Also make yourself familar with the search feature here, and goggle. Although most goggle searchs will point you right back here! Welcome and good luck!

And to get out of X, open a terminal, andtype init 3. If you don't see a text mode login right away, press CTRL+ALT+F1 and one should come up.

And if you run into any questions whilst using Fedora, head on over to

Very specific questions about Fedora Core.
