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've had a challenge updating the code on an older RH 7.2 system which I am administrator of. Its running MRTG in a production environment so installing a completely new distribution isn't an option right at this moment. Besides, the hardware is old, P2450 and 256MB of ram, yes it crawls with X loaded.
Well, I have an RHN account with one of those free demo accounts which allow one system to use up2date. I have been running up2date, and it always replies that I am up to date. However, actually going to rhn.redhat.com and looking at the system, it lists numerous errata, including apache patches. So, I should do someonthing about this. RHN just wants me to pay I guess.....
I could swear that about a year ago I modified some configuration file to use alternative channels. I can not remember what I did or how I learned about it. Googling for "alternative channel" and up2date hasn't been successful for me. Maybe I'm not opening up my eyes.
Isn't there a number of free (university maintained and such) alternative channels for up2date stuff? (I think they were called channels, what are they)
