To know about Fedora 11, I think the first thing is to try and use many 
of the applications that are available. Don't worry too much about the 
hundreds of applications that make up Fedora packages, just use the ones 
you are comfortable with and go from there.

  For instance as a baseline:
If you want programming there are around 30  fairly major applications 
to choose from
For Music there are around 10 fairly comprehensive applications to 
choose from
For 2D vector and other graphic styles of drawing there are probably 6 
from excellent to average.
For 3D modeling there are 2 really good ones and about 6 ranging from 
really good to quite good..
If you want movies there's not much need to know Fedora, just the apps 
that play movies.

In Fedora the text based manual (man) pages show how to use underlying 
  just type man (short for manual) and the application name.
for instance:
man gs will give a help page on ghostscript if it's installed.
man df will tell you about diskfree the disk check application
man du will tell you about disk usage.
man rm will tell you about removing files, use with great care.
To know about Gnome or KDE read the instruction manuals already installed.

May I suggest getting a book about Fedora, it would provide much useful
