Hey Ashif, I'm Indian too!

To become a kernel programmer (not "editor"), the Maurice Bach book "Design of the Unix Operating System" may be good to start off with. It's available in a low cost edition here in India. You'll need to know C.
As for Bash, I'm sure there are plenty of web tuts, maybe someone else here will post about that....?

the most important thing is the practice, so try to implement features. Try to solve problems yourself (not by asking someone else to do that).

I replaced a guy in one job who was a scripting expert. He never actually wanted to _do_ anything himself, but wrote a script to do it. His modem ran some embedded linux and he has a small personal website. Instead of a server, he hacked the modem and put the website in there, so it serves the site.

In the job we both had, programming wasn't a requirement and it was a windows house in the main.

???--how would you get thru the RHCE course and still have very little knowledge?

For scripting, I'd start here:
http://www.tldp.org/guides.html
especially:
Bash Guide for Beginners
Advanced Bash Scrpting Guide

For general programming, I would start with C---here is my favorite book:
http://www.amazon.com/Primer-Plus-5t...2C+6th+Edition

I disagree---get a book on the Linux kernel---eg this one:
http://www.amazon.com/Linux-Kernel-D.../dp/0672329468

It's possible in other subjects. You can prepare to answer exam questions, and regurgitate enough of what is needed to get substantial marks. For instance, I did a networking module. 95% of the class learned how to get into a cisco router without having a clue why.

<return>
en
config t
interface <whatever>
then configure it.

I noticed that return got you into a privileged mode(# prompt - lost on all windows users), config t got you into a configure mode, and so on. There are in fact 3 levels of privilege in cisco routers. So much of rhce is Selinux anyhow.
