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.

I want to use yum to update my RHEL 5 installation(On one system only). It does not allow me to do so without a license. What type of license would I have to buy? Would a basic subscription work for this or is a standard license required?
If you are using Red Hat Enterprise Linux on not more than two sockets you may choose a 1 Year Basic Subscription for $349. You will receive web support with 2 business day response time for unlimited incidents and access to Red Hat Network.
A redhat subscription should be already available, since RHEL5 cannot be installed without it (unless it is a trial version). Ask to the person who installed the system. Maybe you have simply to renew the subscription if it has expired.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop only gives you access to a Red Hat Network channel that includes the full suite of desktop and personal productivity applications but lacks the server components.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux products are based on the same core kernel, libraries, and utilities, and also share the same major package sets. However, because Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop is not designed for use in server environments, there are some differences between family members in terms of their server package sets.
Packages that are not included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop include: amanda-server, arptables_jf, bind, caching-nameserver, dhcp, freeradius, inews, inn, krb5-server, netdump-server, openldap-servers, pxe, quagga, radvd, rarpd, redhat-config-bind, redhat-config-netboot, tftp-server, tux, vsftpd, and ypserv.
Is your installation intended for productivity use? Because there are also community rebuilds of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Packages (e.g. CentOS) that give you access to packages but you will not receive support nor would you help Red Hat with your subscription fee to improve the upstream packages and guarantee future value.
