This review is from: A Practical Guide to Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux (4th Edition) (Paperback)
A Practical Guide to Fedora is perfect for readers new to Linux because it assumes no prior knowledge of Linux and leads off with an explanation of how to install Fedora. The book leads the reader through progressively harder topics: running desktop applications, using the command line interface, system administration, setting up different types of servers, and bash and Perl programming. Throughout, theory of key concepts is interspersed with practical advice and hands-on exercises. This balance between theory and practice, along with explanations that require little prior knowledge of Linux, make this an excellent book for readers new to Linux.
