    treat as reference text on Core 6

    Lucky. I use this word in the following sense. If you are using an earlier version of Red Hat Fedora, like perhaps Core 5, then you already will be familiar with many sections of the book. It stands as a pretty complete description of Core 6. The differential with Core 5 is relatively small. Since Core 5 was itself fairly mature and stable. But what if you are completely new to any linux? Then, if you want to install and learn it, you might as well start with the latest major release, which is covered by the book, at this time of writing. Plus, given the now typical time intervals between major releases of Fedora, Core 6 is likely to remain heavily in use for 2007 and most of 2008. This is the optimal frame of the book. The book strongly promotes Core 6, and starts off with this remark: 'This book provides all the information you need to get up and running with Fedora'. Very true. I also certainly recommend you use linux. But there is an ironic counterpoint to that quote, which may be appreciated by some. You do not need all the information in the book in order to start installing and using linux, even if you are completely new to it. The key section on installing linux, be it from the enclosed DVD or downloaded from the web, is thankfully brief. Much effort has been expended in making this as painless as possible, and the brevity of the section attests to this. Then, when running Core 6, either as a sysadmin or as a user, you can more or less skim various germane sections of the book. Without having to go through most of the narrative. For something like a home computer or a small network of computers, this approach should be adequate. Makes approachable the formidable length of the book.
