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.

I have just succesfully installed Fedora Core and i have a few questions
my soundcard is not recognized, i have a SIS650 chipset with integrated soundcard, a SIS 7012 "avance logic ac97". Unfortunately it does not work, where could i find a driver for my soundcard en how can i install this driver?
My screenresolution is 1024x768. The fonts and the icons look very big to me
is there a way that i could make everything a little bit smaller?
im afraid that i can't get into a higher resolution.
I have my mp3 files stored on my second NTFS partition, how could i move these
files to my linux partition? is there a way to access NTFS of FAT32 partitions in Linux?
burning all these files to cd will take quite some time.
Is there a way to increase performance? It takes quite some time to load apps.
my notebook is a P4 1,7 Ghz, 512mb ram, 40gb HD.
Are there any options i could disable or other things i could or configure
to make it a little bit faster?
If i download apps, do i have to download certain redhat or 'fedora core' packages?
Why is this? and will apps made for GNOME work under KDE and vice versa?
what is a good place to look for free linux apps?
Can you download Wine for free?
If i want to use the wireless network on school i have to login with certain certifcates, these certificates can be installed on windows but it is a win32 app that installs them so it wont work under linux. Though i have to login with my username and pass and i have to work with these certificates.
is there a way, some kind of app that i could use to login to the wireless network at school? the program is called w2secure and it is from Alfa & Ariss. it is a TTLS Client.
more info is here: (i cannot post an url due to the forum policies.)
