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.

Thnx for the quick response -- the file I downloaded from is the same one but I used the link below the one you used -- I have just downloaded from your link and I will try it -- this is just a thought and being still quite new to all this stuff ie: dependencies, repositories -- is it possible that my repositories are not the right ones
Yes I am. I can't get Digikam installed using yum it tells me its looking for a key. I tried installing from a tarball and in the ./configure got the message at the end that the c compiler was not able to complete the job -- when to the forum and found users with the same problem. Did all the suggestions that where given and still have the problem although the original user was fixed up. I don't know if this is all worth it . I have spent all evening trying to install this program and I'm no closer than when I first started. Please tell me it get's better.
thx again for replying so soon. unfortunately I have been there and if the key rpm is there I cannot see it. I have tried downloading from the digikam home site and I cannot configure the un-tar'd file because the compiler has an error. So as much as I hate to think of doing it I may have to reinstall Fedora 4 incase it's a problem in the original install.
I didn't notice that digikam is available in the extras repo. That makes installing it easy for you and all you really need to do is get the yum keys installed to use yum.
You could import the key with this command:
rpm --import /usr/share/rhn/RPM-GPG-KEY
Then, install digikam with this command:
yum install digikam
Might as well update everything while you're at it:
Great! Let us know how it goes.
Also, note that yum update will likely give you a new kernel and a new entry in the boot menu. You will want to boot up with that new kernel and then you can remove the old kernel.
I found it easiest to list the installed kernels with the command: rpm -qa | grep kernel
Then copy/paste the old kernel into a yum remove command like this..... yum remove ( put old kernel info here )
