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.

Hi everyone! First of all I am a newbie in linux. I am running RH EL3. I was given a cd with the latest updates for the distribution and I tried to install them by typing
[root@localhost Updates]# rpm -Uvh *.rpm
[root@localhost Updates]# rpm -ivh *.rpm
The result in both cases looks like this:
error: File not found by glob: at-3.1.8-48.ent.i386.rpm
error: File not found by glob: comps-3ES-0.20040902.i386.rpm
error: File not found by glob: glibc-kernheaders-2.4-8.34.1.i386.rpm
error: File not found by glob: kernel-2.4.21-20.EL.i686.rpm
error: File not found by glob: kernel-BOOT-2.4.21-20.EL.i386.rpm
error: File not found by glob: kernel-doc-2.4.21-20.EL.i386.rpm
error: File not found by glob: kernel-source-2.4.21-20.EL.i386.rpm
error: File not found by glob: redhat-config-securitylevel-tui-1.2.9-2.i386.rpm
error: File not found by glob: rpmdb-redhat-3-0.20040902.i386.rpm
I think you need to use the freshen (-F) flag and not the Update flag. You should be able to get away with
rpm -Fvh *
This will only update packages that you already have installed, so won't install any additional packages.
