Fedora 5

By CLutsic ·
I am currently a student. I am new to linux OS. I am trying to get the hang of it. My class is using fedora core 5. The book I am using is a decent book but, there is nothing with straight asnwers to my questions so that I may really get into the linux OS. Which I am really interested in learning. So my question is. Is there a book or website out there that will seriously aid me in learning the complexity of linux. I am really weak when it comes to programming. So I am trying to write a ssh script but I am stuck. Im not sure where to begin other than start with a "vi". So any feedback would be appreciative. Thanks!

I've three that cover everything, some items 3 times

by Deadly Ernest In reply to Fedora 5

1. SAMS Red Hat Fedora 4 - I'm sure that they probably have a Fedora 5 out by now, it comes with the DVD of the software.

2. Thomson Learning, Course Technology - Guide to Linux Installation and Administration, by Nicjholas Wells. I got this when studying Linux back in 2000, probably an updated version available now.

3. O'Reilly - Linux in a Nutshell by Ellen Siever et al. This is used by many people in the industry as a quick reference guide.

Item 2 above is mre for the beginner to intermediate. Item 3 for the intermediate to semi-regular user. Item 1 for heavy Fedora User.

I've used both Core 4 and Core 5 and dropped them in favour of SimplyMEPIS (www.mepis.com) as it is easer to use and has easy access to some of the power user activities that are hard to do in Fedora Core 4 and 5.

My Favourite Linux flavours are

1. SimplyMEPIS
2. Ubuntu
3. Fedora Core 5
4. Fedora Core 4
5. Mandrake 10

Here is another one

by jdclyde In reply to I've three that cover eve ...

This one is almost a *nix bible.

Unix, shell programming.
By Stephen G. Kochan and Patrick H. Wood.

Hayden books is the publisher.
ISBN 0-672-48448-x

I have the "revised edition", but I am sure there is a newer version out, not that the shell scripts change much.

Also I like Red Hat Linux Networking and System Administration and Beginning Linux Programming by Wrox Press.

Good luck!
