Without any help i installed FC5 and in first i faced a problem of the installation but i got over it.

The problem now that am totally know nothing in using linux operating system, what should i know before and learn in order to understand the solutions that is given by the members for example :

1-I tried to solve the wifi issue.
2-To access the logical Hard Drives of my laptop.

Congratulations on the successful install...

First, ask one question at a time.

Here is my learning method:
1. play with it, experiment, push buttons and see what happens
2. When you get stuck on something, seach Google--then come here to LQ and ask a specific question. Still stuck? Go To 4.
3. return to step 1
4. Buy a book: "Linux in a nutshell", O'Reilly. Already have the first book? Buy another one.
When you get tired of reading, return to step 1.

Repeat steps 1-4 as required

Daniel Barrett's "Linux Pocket Guide" - also from O'Reilly - is a superb cheat sheet and is geared toward Fedora.
