I am a new user to Fedora. I'm quite familiar with command lines in Ubuntu and I assumed most commands are the same on Fedora. However, I realised I could not use e.g. apt-get etc.

What then, are the basic command lines to know when using Fedora?

The above answers will get you started.

I would suggest you look at the Fedora documentation

http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/index.html

Including the sys admin guide

http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/16/html/SystemAdministratorsGuide/index.html

and the selinux guide

http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/13/html/Security-Enhanced_Linux/index.html

The other thing to know, rpmfusion is the 3rd party repo roughly equivalent of universe and multiverse in ubuntu . Think nvidia / ati drivers, multi media.

Defenitly yum command in fedora is the alter-ego of apt-get debian-like distro command. If you want to learn more about fedora here you will find official documentation:

http://docs.fedoraproject.org/

in particular the yum command and all its features are nicely explained in the following section:

http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/16/html-single/SystemAdministratorsGuide/index.html#ch-yum

Shortly: You probably used a lot sudo apt-get install <package-name> command in your debian like distro. In fedora the equivalent is quite the same sudo yum install <package-name>.
