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 txt file on a usb stick that I would like to put onto my computer that has Linux Fedoroa installed. Would someone please explain to me how I can get the file off the stick and onto my computer. I have no experience with command lines.
If your are using Fedora 8, just click on the Computer icon on the desktop, then on storage media, and our usb stick should be show as an icon. Just click on that and it will be mounted and you should see the files. Then just drag and drop whereever you want to put it.
No need to do it from the command line (though that is possible too.)
You see, if your working from the command line, you will need to identify how the system is recognizing the device. It will be sda or sdb (possibly with a number after the sda or sdb). It must then be "mounted" to a mount point. So, once it is identified, the typical command would be something like:
mount -t /dev/sda vfat /mnt/ (not the exact command, but an example)
I will give you the exact command when you post back the results of the above command.
