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.

Do you mean RH2.8 or RHEL2.8. Either way it is a massively out of date. RH9 hit EOL (end of life) in 2004. RHEL2.8 is either beyond or approaching EOL. Consider the RHEL5.2 is current.

You still have not told us which version you are running.
Either way, since the versions are both quite old, there will be an extremely small number of people with current knowledge. This is the secondary trap of running an older version. While thousands of people may have run the version in its glory days, probably less than one percent of those are still using it. Now you put on top of that, how many of those users are likely to see your post? The older the version gets the smaller that number goes.
