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.

For an install? I would think so, but the end result will be alot bigger as you save the source for everything and then compile it all from said source. SRPMs normally install SPEC, then they are built from source, unlike normal RPMs which are binary. I would doubt on an install you would be doing this yourself, but the end effect would be a longer installtion, I would think. But you would end up with a more optimized install and all the sources installed too.
Maybe someone with more than a general knowledge of deora/red hat installs can verify this or supply correct info.
Yeah. I'm not to worried about space. I got a 160GB hard drive so I'm sure I will have tons of space.
Now I currently have a couple partitions I want to keep. It is possible to install Fedore Core 4 over my current Whitebox install without having to format all partitions right? Theres actually just one partition I need to keep which has all my websites, email and music.
Cool, well I plan on doing a full install anyways. I got tons of space and I'm not going to be putting more much on except my websites and music. So I don't mind if it takes up a bit of space, I'm sure its not going to go over 5GB - but I'm not Linux expert
