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've had this issue before and never was resolved with earlier versions of Red Hat.
I've been using Fedora for about two to three days now on this particular laptop, and i've not done much else except include the proxy here at school and everything works like a charm up until today. Mozilla, Konqueror, and the other generic internet browsers can still browse websites and do all it's functionalities minus download. When I click to download an RPM or some file, even from mirror sites, it will simply not download anything. Just sit there and say Done in the status bar. Once It actually started to view the file sh code in the browser and downloaded it through viewing, and in attempt to save the file, it had a file integrity check error. Perhaps because it was saved out of viewing from the browser. I right click on files and click save target as, but still yet, the browser does nothing. I have rebooted twice, and the same problem still occurs. Why?
Distribution: debian (when I can) RHEL (when I must)
FWIW, you never want to do anything but critical administration work as root. Most of the stability and security bonuses that come with useing linux are thrown out the window if you use root regularly.
