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.

Got a question. I am trying to login to a redhat server via VNC. This used to work until I reloaded the box. Although I had previously logged in directly to the box, then I could vnc to it remotely. The service is running, netstat states the ports are open and listening. I can ssh to the box, and ran the usual commands to start the services.
So my question is. Do I need to have a local user logged in before I can VNC, if so how can I do that via the command line.
If this is not required for a local user to be logged in, what am I missing. Other than VNC, which other services do I need to start.
My *guess* is the X session isn't starting on the RH box, and it's got
something to do with that xinit file.
Can you post what steps you followed.
I recommend you to follow these complete steps and see if no error gets displayed : http://www.unixmen.com/linux-tutoria...-centosrhel-5x
