That sounds kinda gross... really, it does.

I'm sure Google can help with these, Google is really nice. KDE and GNOME are desktop environments, the kernel is the base, userspace programs talk to other userspace programs or libraries which talk to the kernel. It handles low level operations like memory paging, disk IO, devices and other stuff like that. Fedora Core is a linux distrobution, it's a bundle of programs chucked on a CD that make life easier for you.

Now go type the underlined bits into Google or maybe and it'll make sense.
