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.

yum can not be used to update system on fedora10,because fedora11's iso list is not the same as before,you can use "preupgrade" tool to update.
here is the way:
1. yum update rpm
2. yum -y update
3. yum clean all
5. yum install preupgrade
7. select fedora11
8. click "Reboot"
you must be sure that your net is ok.
Also to clarify, rpmfusion is NOT an official Fedora repository, so you must have enabled it yourself for some reason.
I recommend disabling 3rd party repositories (like rpmfusion) before your upgrade. Better yet, back up your data and do a fresh reinstall as suggested above.
Also when you run "preupgrade" 3rd party repos and the packages installed from them will not be upgraded. I have run two preupgrades from Fedora 10 to Fedora 12 one on a desktop and the other a laptop.
You will also find that the installer will complain of insufficient space in "/boot" to complete the installation if you have more than one kernel installed so you will have to remove extra kernels etc from /boot.
After the install completes and you get to a working system open a terminal and run
rpm -qa | grep fc10
and you will probably find all of the 3rd party packages that did not get upgraded. What I did was run the yum gui yumex and selected all of the F10 packages for removal. Then reinstalled the extras for the release I upgraded to, which in my case was F12.
