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 would like to ask WHY?? RHEL2.1 is way too old. RHEL6 beta has come. And RHEL3 will go out of life shortly. You should consider RHEL5.4. And if you are looking for distribution that is free to use, then you want to look into CentOS5.4. It is RHEL with no logos. But you can not download and use RHEL without paying RH for the same.
It is recommended that any system still running CentOS 2 should be
upgraded to a more recent version of CentOS to ensure continued security
and bug fix support. Upgrade information can be found here http://wiki.centos.org/MigratingTwoToFive
Thank you to everyone who helped make this project possible. The Caos
and CentOS projects, the unnamed upstream vendor and of course, the
users who gave it a reason to exist.
After 5 years at the helm of CentOS-2, I look forward to working on some
new projects both CentOS and elsewhere. This might be the last update
announcement I post but it won't be the last time you see my name.
As said before, you can not directly download RHEL, you will need to get in touch with RH sales. It could be unlikely they will support outdated and out of life version. You are better to go off with CentOS2.1. You can download it from the link jens has given.
