You've collected in one place so many things that took me (and probably many others new to Fedora and Linux) a lot of time to hunt down over the past month. Please consider adding what you have come up with to the How-To section here.

For a newbie like me, this is pure gold!

I just want to get up and running so I can use my Fedora book to learn Linux/Fedora. This post is such a nice quickie tutorial to get the important things going so I can begin to explore and learn Linux. Once I have the basics, I can crawl under the hood and learn command lines, recompiling, etc.

Thanks again for taking the time and effort to put this guide together!!!!!!!
