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.

In Ubuntu i just did sudo apt-get install kde and it installed KDE 4.2 for me. I'm wondering how i can do this in Fedora that i'm using right now.. i did yum install kde and it returned this..
[queenz@localhost ~]$ su -
[root@localhost ~]# yum install kde
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
No package kde available.
Nothing to do
I started looking for the Fedora repositories and did not get very far. Look in your package manager and get the url of one of the repositories--plug this into a browser and see if you can find the kde package that way. OR--the Fedora wiki might have something.
If you want JUST kde, it is "yum install kdebase". The reason "yum install kdepim" works is that kdebase is a dependency of kdepim, and therefore yum installs it to satisfy the dependency (as well as all of the other dependencies).
