    Although I know that almost everything one could ever want to know about Linux is online, as a librarian, I still have a fondness for printed books. I picked up this one yesterday: Fedora Linux Toolbox : 1000+ commands for Fedora, CentOS, and Red Hat Power Users. by Christopher Negus and Francois Caen. $24.99 at Borders; less at Amazon. This is well organized, well written, and reasonably priced.
