Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Do I need to re-compile that file after I edit it?
The up2date feature is totally screwed. It told me I needed to register my product in order to activate it, I then went through a very poor application process where I ended up making about 3 rhn id's, and got nothing accomplished. (Which I now thing I didn't even have to do)
I tried to enter what I thought was the correct proxy for the up2date app, and now it can't connect to the RHN.
I've also manually downloaded the file, which I can't unpack; this is the error I get;
"Could not remove packages
You have selected a package for removal that is depended upon by a necessary system package. The package must be unselected before removal can continue.

I can't figure out how to install anything, or get the up2date thing working again. (I think I smell another re-install)
I visited the website and ran yum to get the updates, and it installed a few, but a lot of them were corrupt so it quit. However, it's not showing that I have a tonne of updates, it I could only get the installer to work properly.
