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.

re RH9 (vs 7.3)
I should update my profile - I use mostly Mandrake 9.2 now (just one RH7.3 system still running!). I switched because Redhat made it clear they were not interested in people using Linux on the desktop.

...though it is RedHat, I'd put some holes in Fedora. I'd first try to switch to something like Slackware, SuSE, Vector Linux (very interested in this one, if I could just get the dam ISO ), or even Knoppix. Many of the programs a friend of mine tried (that ran under RedHat) would fail under Fedora.
Originally posted by lectraplayer The only 3D programs I've had any luck with are UnrealEd (if that counts) and Blender.
I've tried blender, but it doesn't even come close to 3d Studio Max 2.x or 3.x, let alone 4.x, 5.x, or 6.x. However, I did see Maya has linux support. The stupid thing about that program, though, is why would they take out mac support for their flagship version? Honestly, it defies all logic!
