is that a good book to get while learning more about fedora? Any suggestions that would be better? Thanks!

Isn't there a Fedora 6 book? I know there are books on 4 and 5 (my nearest English language bookshop has those but not 6 yet)

Personally, I'd go for a distro agnostic book, while distros change the Linux basics usually remain the same. Even some of those come with 2 or 3 distros on the cover. Linux in a Nutshell, or a Dummies guide, something like that.

thanks alot! I will give some of the downloads a go, thanks so much for sharing. So it is good to learn basic linux rather than just one distro, sounds like good advice.

cheers!

Technical books on linux I have found can be a disappointment - so often they just skim over the subject and do not get into sufficient technical detail. I bought an expensive copy of Fedora 5 Unleashed and frankly I have learnt more from the gurus and experts on this site - and was not charged over NZ$80-00 for the knowledge! The book just blithley referred me to another text when I searched for info on iptables and SElinux. Google gets the info trail you need!
