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.

Trying other mirror.
Error: failure: expect-5.43.0-5.1.i386.rpm from DVD REPO: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
A quick addition...I am using the DVD from Red Hat for EL5.3 (Workstation and Client).
It mounts automatically under /media/RHEL_5.3 i386 DVD (spaces included).
I didn't rename it when creating the DVD so I had to use baseurl=file:///media/RHEL_5.3%20i386%20DVD/Workstation to get the spaces translated in the URL properly. I made a second .repo file for the Client rpm set.
