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.

Im completely new to linux and just installed Fedora Core 2 on a pIV dell machine... and im completely lost. I dowloaded a few tool from the net and most of them come in RPM files, but i cant open them. I've read about a program called KPackage, but cant seem to find it antwhere... help!
Normal RPM files can be downloaded very easily, just by double clicking it and following the instructions. Once its downloaded its done.
What files are you having trouble with maybe i can walk you through them.
Originally posted by shockthealien Also, can anybody tell me how to do connect to other computers and stuff? I thought i had configured it properly, but cant see anybody in the network servers thing
Sure, click the thing and the thing, open a terminal session, then type the command, press enter, do the hokey-pokey, slap your monitor on the side and it should work.
And if that fails, tell us a little bit about your network configuration, so we can properly help you
