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 just installed Fedora 17 on a live 64GB USB stick that I use on my lenovo and HP notebooks and my XP desktop. Everything is working just fine - even Flash. But I keep getting this splash screen that asks to install Fedora to the hard drive. I don't want to install F17. I just want this screen to disappear. Where is the switch to turn it off?
Don't know where the switch is, but with 64GB, I'd definitely do a full install to the USB stick. Unless things have changed, the persistence file on a live USB stick can fill up, causing the system to freeze and you to lose all of your data and customizations stored in the persistence file (been there, done that, but haven't totally learned my lesson yet)
To do a live install on a USB flash drive, I put the live image on a small (1GB) flash drive, boot it, plug in the flash drive onto which I want to install Fedora (a 4GB stick; my largest), then click on the install to disk icon on the desktop. When asked which device to install to, I select my large USB stick, and proceed as I would installing to a hard drive.
