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 understand that Redhat is not all the rage that it was. Was this primarily because of their decision to charge for the product or becuase of decisions related to what Redhat would include in its implementation or some other reason?
Help or reference material on this topic is appreciated.
I just made the jump to Fedora Core 1, previously like everyone else I used Win XP Home. At first I used FC 2 but I had too many problems with the dual boot. Then I decided to use FC 1, so far it has been a pretty good experience. I have learned alot in the last week or two, I will definitely continue to use FC 1 and learn more. Good luck on your decision.
i have a successful dual boot xp/fedora laptop with working wireless networking/network printing (connected to an xp box in my network). i would say that the way i have picked up most of what i know is by reading a lot. may i suggest the book Running Linux by o'reilly. it's a great reference, as are most o'reilly books and then read lots of man pages. the second best way i have found for learning is by [promo]reading this forum[/promo]. you find people with similar problems and successes, and can help out when you have solved a similar problem.
