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 am a n00b to linux, having dabbled slightly in RedHat 9.0 and Mandrake, all with too many troubles for their worth. I've recently installed Fedora Core 2, and the troubles that I had (getting my wireless card working) have been solved.
Now...when I try to install Firefox 0.9.3 it gets all the way up to the actual installation and then just disappears. As in, before any files are copied to my system, the program disappears and I guess closes itself. I've been installing from root, if that makes any difference. I've tried everything I could think of (which isn't much), and searched for any similar problems. I recieve no errors of any kind; it just closes.
My system configuration is:
CPU: AthlonXP 1800+ OC'd to 1.67GHz
Mobo: Asus A7V333
RAM: 512MB PC2700
Video: GeForce4 Ti 4400 w/ 128MB RAM
Storage: 120GB Windows Drive & 13GB Linux Drive
Kernel Version: 2.6.6-1.435.2.3 w/ 16K Stack Size
I've tried installing Firefox on the regular Kernel and it still wouldn't work. The reason I go the regular kernel was due to nVidia Drivers (which I still haven't installed).
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot!
Surely Fedora has a package manager in its Control Center. If it's anything like the RH 9 package manager (RH9 being the last and only RH variant I've ever used), you should be able to uncheck the checkbox next to the name of the package in question to uninstall it.
Or, of course, you could use rpm -e <package_name>.
