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 gotta admit. I got addicted to the game Battle of Wesnoth on Windows. I was going to install it on Linux but when I went to pbone.net and rpmfind.net they did not have the most up to date version for Fedora Core 3.
I saw a few up to date rpm's but they were not for Fedora Core 3. I know you can use other distro's rpm's to install programs but I heard it is not good to do from a friend of mind.
I also know you can install programs from the source but I have not done it before. I could read probably install but would not know how to uninstall the program afterward if I did it that way.
I saw 1 source rpm for Fedora Core 3, but when I use the command, "rpm --rebuild", the terminal says that the option rebuild is an unknown option.(I guess this is why people say Fedora is a package based disto)
So that leads me to now. I don't mean to sound like a simpleton but what would be the best move to do, install from another Distro's rpm or install from source? If you recommend installing from source how would I uninstall?
