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.

Skyline - thanks, I'll try that later/tomorrow. Being a complete beginner I have no idea how to go about compiling a kernel, so the RPM sounds like the best option. By the way, I have a choice of processor architecture for the RPM - i386, i496, athlon etc. I have an Athlon processor but I'm sure it mentions i686 at Linux startup. Which RPM should I use?
aqoliveira - I did try that, thanks, however it turns out that RedHat is one of few distributions that does not include NTFS support by default (see the information at the link supplied by Skyline).
