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.

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.

The 404 or Not Found error message is an HTTP standard response code indicating that the client was able to communicate with the server but either the server could not find what was requested, or it was configured not to fulfill the request and did not reveal the reason why. 404 errors should not be confused with "server not found" or similar errors, in which a connection to the destination server could not be made at all.
Thanks everyone for their nice support.I added some extra repositories to my yum.repos.d folder and it worked for me ,but in the end, can someone post a list of all featured yum repositories or where can be they found at one place ?
Thanks once again for being this much helpful to newbies like me.
I've never seen a list like this, and I rather doubt one exists. Not all of the repo guys get along, and worse still, there are incompatibilities between certain repos (used to be livna vs dag/atrmps etc - is that still the case?)
Experience helps, but that isn't really an answer that helps you
