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 a laptop with FC3 which i am keen on upgrading but i dont have a CD drive. I was wondering if anyone has sucessfully tried upgrading to Fedora Core 4 ysing just the YUM repos ?? the method is at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/YumUpgradeFaq
sorry i dont come with your answers! lol
if your upgrading, might as well get FC5, it just came out!
i would think you could simply modify the repositories that yum looks in, and set them to be from the FC5 series, then update/upgrade the entire system.. that should bring you to basically FC5.
anyways, my real motive for posting is that i noticed your from windsor! me too! what school did you go to if you dont mind me asking?
frankly i really enjoy the university life and am not exactly looking forwad to the end of the 4th year ( seriously, there must be something wrong with me but i do enjoy the studies and well the adventure overall). something new everyday doubt i will see that after the 4 years though. all the best for the upcomming finals !
ya, since having a friend in the situation your in, i hear its pretty tough and the class averages arent very good, as with most U courses i bet.. i enjoy my school work too, just cant wait to finally be finished all my schooling forever, and step into the 'real' world! good luck
