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.

This sis just a qurious case of benjamin button, that I am asking such a silly thing...but could anybody please suggest me what is "noarch" in package names , and what is its significanse?
There is 'el5' which means 'enterpriseLinux 5', and there is 'fc6' which means 'FedoraCore 6' ( I Hope).
While the noarch suffix refers to architecture as explained from previous posts, the el5 and fc6 suffixes mean these packages have been built specifically for those particular Linux distributions - or better - they have been packaged from the official distributors, whereas third party repositories use their own suffix (for example "pm" from the Packman repository of OpenSuse packages).
