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.

Assuming you have the normal RedHat and you meant when you installed it you choose server rather than desktop or workstation if you open a shell and change to root and type in up2date it will start up and
and prompt you to register (if you didn't all ready) and then will update all the packages RedHat installs and has updates for. If that don't work try rhn_register. It 's free.
Don't know about the Red Hat Server editions that they sell though if that's what you've got.
yes, you are correct. I chose server rather than workstation. I have 6 cds that came with pc world minibooks which included full 3 cd release of red hat linux 8.0 but i do not understand why you have got sendmail 8.12.8 and i have got 8.12.5.
I will try up2date tomorrow. But, will it update sendmail as well?
