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.

Well, not really. I have been applying with the
released updates only since I installed 4 and my
version has stayed at 4, not 4.x.
I think if one updates/upgrades the core/base,
then the 4 becomes whichever is the current.
So, the question still is whether updating/upgrading
the core/base in addition to the updates is better,
or this does not really matter as long as I keep up
with the regular updates even though I remain at 4.
in what wqay do you remain at 4? i don't really follow that. i would assume that if you do a full "yum upgrade" then youre centos-release rpm would be upgraded, and that would be what defines the release version you are deemed to be running. if you have applied all the updates then you will be on the latest version of centos available, and subversion numbers merely stand to provide a noted landmark in terms of the base installation level.
I'm just confused as to why you'd want to stay on CentOS 4, and not install the kernel updates. I would install all updates, including the kernel updates. I trust RHEL and CentOS, they haven't burned me yet.
Wait a minute folks, we are posting to the enterprise forum where being a day late as long as your not a dollar short is not a big deal. Perhaps if you are upgrading 50 desktops, bleeding edge with some testing is acceptable. However leaving servers a version behind and just patching for security issues makes good sense.
