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.

fedora has copy right issues with playing media. It says mp3 codes missing and when yo try downloading it takes forever.
1.download rpmfusion for your fedora 14 or any version from http://rpm.pbone.net/ make sure you choose an appropriete rpm for your "uname".
2.go to the terminal as root
3.install rpmfusion as in "#rpm -ivh rpmfusion"
#yum install vlc
even if your connection is slow it will download and install, i had the same problem and that solved it for me.
