Kindle does not support PDF.  However, according to
http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=200140600&#send
you can email foo free kindle com , where foo is your Kindle's name as
established at http://www.amazon.com/manageyourkindle

Then, Amazon will email you back the file in Kindle's proprietary format.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=200137060&#connecting
says it appears as a USB mass storage device, which Fedora should detect.

Then, you should be able to transfer files to the documents folder on
the Kindle.

I don't have a Kindle, so I can't test these instructions.
