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.

Be aware that Fedora is undergoing some growing pains. Since control of the board was handed over to the community (roughly after FC6 development) there have been some major structural changes in the OS(which is a good thing). The problem is that when you make such large changes you introduce a ton of bugs. Since the community was under the spot light to keep up the six month release schedule, they have chosen to prioritize the new versions rather than clean up the backlog of bugs. If they had done this for just one version it would have been ok, but there are a ton of bugs that were introduced in F7 that are still with us in F10(beta). Between the backlog from the major changes in F7 and the backlog from F9 there is getting to be a significant load of "legacy" (but still existing in current versions) bugs. At some point these bugs will have to be dealt with. I believe that RH has recognized that there is a problem becuase they pushed back the RHEL6 target from F9 to F10(and possibly F11 now) along with the fact that they have hired significantly more developers for the Fedora project(hopefully to get the issue under control). To put things in perspective I have been running Fedora since FC4 and RH before that. Currently I have Centos5.2 on my servers and F8 on my desktops(tinkering with F10 on one box).
