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.

What exactly do you want to know? If you have a paid for/registered system, then you will get updates from RH via RHN (RedHat Network).
If you haven't/don't want to pay, replace the RH install with the equiv Centos (RH code without RH logos etc.)
Welcome to LQ, I hope the site is as useful to you as it has been to me.
BTW, the advice to use CentOS instead RHEL when 0 cost is desired/necessary is sound.
On a CentOS/RHEL server we should never install only one DE (desktop environment), it should be either none or at least 3; the 3 being Gnome (default), KDE, & XFCE.
My rationale is that the administrators should be allowed to work in the DE w/ which they are most familiar & in which they are most comfortable. Primary reasons: Speed & Accuracy == efficiency == lower cost.
Whether to install any DE (i.e., DE vs. pure CLI) is a separate discussion.
