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.

Today I finally made the switch from Windows to Linux, and have had only one problem. I can not load a NTFS partition on my Fedora Core 6 box.
My kernel version is 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 i686
I have been using the command sudo yum install kmod-ntfs
I receive the following error:
Transaction Check Error: package kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 is already installed
file /boot/System.map-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 from install of kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 conflicts with file from package kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6

I am new to linux, and have no idea what that means. Can you help me out?

#sudo yum install kmod-ntfs
