    Here's some stuff from the tutorials section that might help you:
    Nifty command line guide by flw
    Nifty directory structure tutorial by sarumont

    And as far as installing AIM, I recommend Gaim as a client because it's very widely used (which means it's easy to find help on) and it allows you to connect to MSN messenger, IRC, Yahoo!, and a bunch of other services. I think in Fedora Core 2 you can just type
    Code:
    yum gaim
    to install that, if you have yum. I could be wrong about that though.

    Good luck!

    EDIT: In response to your second post, I don't know how to install Wine on Fedora Core 2. However, to find out what user you are logged in as, you should use the command
    Code:
    whoami
    Hope this helps.

    for wine, try
    Code:
    yum wine
    first, if thats no good, visit wine's website, and they have links to download rpm's
