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.

Why are you using an OS that reached end of life for support on 12/9/2011. There are no security updates for it anymore, no software repositories for it. I would recommend you try the newest version Fedora 20.
Also, when posting large blocks of code like above please use the code tags. It makes it easier to read
Thanks for the quick response. Actually i want this Fedora 14 OS as my data card (Reliance CDMA) wont support for the kernel above 2.6.36, and fedora 14 comes with 2.6.35 which suites for my data card, but my sound wont work
As per the recommendations, I installed the Centos 6.5 and I got the sound back. I even got the wireless (WiFi) network too which was gone in Fedora.
But my datacard was was not working. The datacard was supportable only for Fedora upto 14 and Ubuntu 10.x. It was somehoew tricky to make my datacard to make it work on Centos and I was able to do so.
Now I got all my thinks working, sound,WiFi and yahhhh most important MY DATACAARD
Thanks once again my Friends who had help me to make things to happen.
