please use useful thread titles if you wish to get useful help. "help!!!!" gives no insight at all in to the question you have.

Who is teaching a course based on RedHat 7.2? You'd think that at least an instructor would use more up to date stuff.

But only slightly. IIRC, 7.2 uses ipchains and iptables are the default nowadays. You'll probably also find that since 7.2 was ceased to be supported there have been security holes found that can only be resolved by going into each file and replacing it manually with a more up to date version.

Far better to install CentOS or Fedora and use that to learn.

Very true...but for starters, command line etc this is fine - they should update the course though!

But then there are lots of other ways to teach command line. It would be like trying to do an MCSE course using Win 95. Yes it's still out there, but it's outdated and things you learn there won't easily carry across to more modern systems.
