Part I: Getting Your Feet Wet

In this part . . .

This Part includes an introduction to the development and capabilities of the Linux operating system. We also cover the terms and tools that make Linux what it is, along with detailed step-by-step instructions about what it takes to prepare your computer for Linux and to install the popular Fedora Core Linux on your very own PC. From there, you find out how to address particular troubleshooting problems, and then we take a tour of the desktop and find out how to customize it. By the end of this Part, you’ve installed the Linux system and have some basic ability to find and try out software.
