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.

What exactly are these two machines doing? (Not that it matters.) I guess it's understood to be a personal preference as to what exactly you want to use. You'd just be better off trying one, then deducting what you like best about each of them. Good luck, and have fun. =)
Oh yeah, by the way... I'm sure you could obtain official differences from the actual sites of these two distributions. They'd probably provide more information as to the pros and cons of their distribution.
If you've got 2 machines, why not just install FC2 on the other machine? That way you can do a side by side comparison. After all, the only way for you to find out whether one distro is better than the other is to try both. -- J.W.
