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 am not in front of my Fedora Core 3 laptop at the moment, as I am at home downloading some programs, but I was just wondering, even though the standard Fedora Core 3 installation does not include KDE, can it still run KDE applications?
I would like to install K3B on it, but I am not sure if it will work because when I installed FC3 I did the default installation, only including GNOME. Does this mean that K3B and other apps like amaroK won't work?
A swift reply would be appreciated. Thanks in advance,
Well you'll need Qt installed (because KDE apps use that as the toolkit for drawing widgets) and probably certain KDE libraries too. I have KDE installed and never use it, but it makes life easier sometimes.
Qt can be downloaded from www.trolltech.com but you'll need to compile it. I am pretty sure that FC has the libraries you need on there somewhere...use whatever package tool comes with it to install them. If you plan to ever compile things from source then also install the corresponding devel packages.
