Summary: Covers both introductory and advanced topics
Comment: Red Hat, Inc. recently combined their Red Hat Linux distribution with the open source Fedora Linux Project to create the Fedora Core Project. FCP produced Fedora Core 1, which is essentially what would have been Red Hat Linux 10. Red Hat, Inc. maintains overall control while the user community contributes to the technical development of the project.

Red Hat Linux Fedora for Dummies helps you use Fedora Core 1 to get work done and also have a lot of fun. We provide information to help you learn the following topics:

* Repartition your computer to use Fedora Core 1 with Windows
* Install Fedora Core 1 from a DVD (no more swapping CDs!)
* Connect to the Internet through a broadband DSL or cable modem
* Connect to the Internet through a dial up telephone modem
* Connect to an existing home or office local area network (LAN)
* Troubleshoot network connections
* Use the OpenOffice suite (compatible with MS Office)
* Browse the Internet with Mozilla
* Use Mozilla or Evolution to process your e-mail
* Play CDs and DVDs
* Listen to Internet audio streams with MPlayer
* Provide basic network services to your LAN
* Use simple and advanced techniques to secure your computer
* Create a networked streaming audio server with IceCast
* Use VMware to install a Windows or Linux virtual computer
* Use Wine to run Windows applications
* and many more subjects...

We use straight-forward examples to demonstrate each area of interest. Our book describes how to do most of the simple, but essential tasks necessary to install and use Fedora Core 1. However, this book is more than an introduction to Fedora Core and Linux. We introduce several carefully chosen advanced topics, such as streaming multimedia servers and virtual machines, to demonstrate the power of Fedora Core. The end result is that Red Hat Linux Fedora for Dummies covers a suprisingly wide spectrum of topics in an easy to understand manner.

Summary: Great book for using Linux
Comment: I liked this book because it showed me how to do a lot of cool things with Linux. It did a good job of installing Linux along side my Windows computer. I also got my internet radio working and some other stuff. Good job!
