What would be a good book to get to serve as a COMPLETE beginers guide to Fedora? If there is such a book. Thanks!

I don't know any book.but you can check out documentation for Red Hat Linux 9 - much of things should be the same in FC... this documentation is quite good.

http://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/9/en/doc/RH-DOCS/rhl-gsg-en-9/index.html [starter]
you can also get PDFs with that and print them if you need on paper.

I find the "for Dummies" series to be good for anything you're just getting into. So I would say to check out Red Hat Fedora for Dummies. It has some nice stuff in it and is quite helpful for anyone just getting into linux in general.

Yes, dummy books are very good. Provides a good springboard atleast.

Making a complete guide is hard. There are many software packages in Fedora, and getting people started in all of them would require more than one book.

But when you are a beginner you just want the basics. There are plenty of books out there with the basics to get you started, like the ones previously mentioned.

I have seen a completely Fedora based book at my local Waldens. It was like $50 if i remember correctly Here we go (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0764557459/qid=1098646477/sr=2-1/ref=pd_ka_b_2_1/104-7239585-6068725)

Completely based on RH and Fedora, believe it comes with FC2 on 4-5 cd's too. Hope this helps.
