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.

Why? Fedora is just the latest and greatest testing ground for future RHEL releases. There's literally no difference in them except one is driven by the community and the other is a commercial release you pay for. You can learn just as much from using RHEL as from Fedora. And honestly if they are going to pursue a career in Linux, probably better to learn RHEL as more corporations and businesses will use a proven stable OS rather than the testing OS that Fedora is.
Are you going to pay for RHEL just to learn it? I doubt the original poster has and will soon hit the common problems associated to un-licensed versions of RHEL, like the fact you don't have YUM repositories you can use, no support... if you wanna learn enterprise level linux then might as well go to CentOS, Fedora was originally just the testing platform for RHEL but alot of people use it now for desktops now... just have to remember to keep fedora up-to-date at all times...
You don't need to pay for it to install it, problem is alot of things with RHEL don't work until you pay, thus why he was being redirected elsewhere, being the point I was making.
What gives you that idea? Everything works, but the following is what you don't get compared to when you purchase a subscription:
1. Technical support from Red Hat.
2. Security or software updates via Red Hat Network. You will have to find updates from alternative resources that provide reliable, secure downloads.
3. Support from certified hardware suppliers or software vendors like Oracle for applications running on an expired Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscription.
4. Coverage from the Red Hat Open Source Assurance program, featuring an Intellectual Property Warranty for Red Hat Enterprise Linux customers. Red Hat designed the program to protect customers using open source solutions.
But technically if you haven't paid for it or your subscription expires after purchasing, you are suppose to take the following steps to continue using it and you also still agree to the original License Agreement.
Please note that when your subscription expires you will still be bound by the terms and conditions of the End User License Agreement and will have to remove all copies of Red Hat Network Code.
Please try to give accurate information if you're going to give such information.
I have found LQ to be my best resource for finding information about Linux, so you've come to the right place.
I do have some suggestions that might help you in your quest for information and help. Getting information is all about communication. Clarity in your communication is important if you want to be understood correctly. Part of that clarity is the proper use of the language, regardless of which language you are using.
I am guessing from your name that you might be from the middle east, and that English is not your native language. That's OK, and most people here are tolerant of the struggles non-native speakers have with composing written dialog. But one thing that could make a big difference would be to divide up your text into sentences and paragraphs using capitalization and punctuation.
I think I read your original post three times before I caught the "xen", and I'm wondering if any of the other responders noticed that since their answers were all directed to Linux in general, or the differences between RHEL and Fedora. If it is xen you need help with, you might try going to http://www.xen.org/.
Also, if you are having difficulty with multiple concepts, for example like RHEL, RPM, xen, and Command line, then you will get better answers if you start a separate thread for each issue, and state clearly which area you would like help with.
