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.

By the way, does it have to be RHEL? For all its merits...there is money involved...
I - personally - advise against free use of a product that has a licencing model attached to it, but hey, that's just me...
I advice if it's for a commercial/enterprise environment, to examine the licencing model first and consider the OS from that angle, but again that's me... hehe
And, the real TBOne is the one with "guru" by his name... :P
Downloading CentOS wouldn't be a bad idea either, as it is, by all accounts, RHEL without the branding.
That is incorrect. From Red hat:
While CentOS is derived from the Red Hat Enterprise Linux codebase, CentOS and Red Hat Enterprise Linux are distinguished by divergent build environments, QA processes, and, in some editions, different kernels and other open source components. For this reason, the CentOS binaries are not the same as the Red Hat Enterprise Linux binaries.

RHEL is FREE, the only that you pay for a SUBSCRIPTION it's for support (includes patches, bug fixes, technical support). You must create an account and go to access.redhat.com there you will be download the product of Red Hat that you want.
For Red Hat doesn't exist the concept of "Licensing", here exist "Subscription" and they aren't the same thing. The license is the right to use the product, ex: MS Windows Server 2012. The subscription from Red Hat brings you the access to many other things, like: technical support (two ways standard or premium), you can move your subscription to any machine that you want, upgrade or downgrade your product any time that you want (without charges), patches, bug fixes and official documentation (technical documents and guides) of any Red Hat products (RHEV, RHEL, CloudForms, JBOSS, etc)
