Each new release of Fedora Core brings with it new possibilities. Red Hat Enterprise and Fedora Core 4: The Complete Reference by Richard Petersen makes a special effort to incorporate the latest developments of Fedora Core as well as Linux in general. Critical changes have taken place with device management (udev and HAL) and software access, as well as new capabilities like GFS (Global File System).
