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'm having an issue getting readline commands in bash to work. I have some RHEL 4 boxes that execute the commands perfectly (control-e jumps to end of line, control-l clears the screen, etc...) but my RHEL 3 boxes don't behave as they should.
I've compared the /etc/inputrc files and they're identical, and I've even tried tweaking the file (changing the "#"\e[4~": end-of-line" entry to ""\C-e": end-of-line") but no change, even after sourcing /etc/profile which refers to /etc/inputrc.
I'm accessing the boxes via ssh, and AFAIK that shouldn't make a difference, as I'm accessing the RHEL 4 boxes the same way with no issues.
Can anyone shed some light on this? It would be greatly appreciated...
Verify you're using the same shell on both after login. You might be running bash on one and ksh on the other. Also there are two flavors or ksh out there for RHEL. pdksh was the older one which wasn't POSIX compliant. The ksh package is however. If using ksh you want to type "rpm -qa |grep ksh" to see which you have installed on each.
On the non-working machine do:
Test your command.
Once done to revert to original settings just type:
Personally I don't care for emacs so I'd change it permanently to vi on both sides but since you're saying it "works" on the one with emacs that's the one you'd want to try.
