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 fedora 10 on an AMD X64 desktop. I installed sunvirtualbox on it, in the intention to install windows . After define the virtual hdd in the virtual box, when i give start, I receive error asying that the source for the kernel cannot be find and the virtualbox cannot be configured. Practically, the virtualbox kernel module refuse to load.

rpm -ivh VirtualBox-2.2.2_46594_fedora9-1.x86_64.rpm
and it works

Finally I just start the VB from the menu and it seem to work ! It recognise the DVD, it tried to install XP, but from some reason, the installation was cancelled. I will try to set different the virtual unit that was created with VB.
Thank you all !
