Hello LINUX - Goodbye Windows

Hello everyone.

3rd post of this day

i think this is the right forun for me. the new people...

as a new one on LINUX world i want to learn to work with the great environment i have on my pc (RED HAT FEDORA)

However, my printer doesn't work properly (only when i print a test page) .... my sound (Creative) doesn't work... my webcam Creative doesn't work..... my e-mail works... my internet works and my openoffice too...

however, i see so many things on my Red Hat that i really don't know where to start. and specially HOW...

I think that LINUX is a MUST.... i want to know how and work with it.

do i have to buy a book ???

Would appreciate any kind of help..step by step please

Best regards
