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.

Well, either 9.0 or Fedora Core should do....
but as Fedora Core is a development version...
maybe it is better to start off with 9.0... of course this is just my thought...
There are forums for both Redhat and Fedora...
why dun you go check it out?
No, after april there will be no more support. I have no problems with using Fedora Core 1. You'll have longer support on it and the next version, if you decide to upgrade when it comes out, will probably upgrade easier from FC1 than from RH9.
If you want bugs. Use Mandrake 9.2 (Mandy is sucks now). I'm going back to fedora core. Didn't have one problem with it. Was very stable and I had 3 different update programs on their: apt, yum and up2date.
I had small problems when I first used FC1. Small things like getting the flash plugin to work, getting java to work, getting the NVIDIA drivers to take, but each problem I encountered had a solution documented on the net somewhere. I've been using it since the day it came out and I'm very happy with it. Can't wait to see what FC2 is like with the newer kernel. But that's in April, I believe.
