If you want to see what it's all about the visit http://www.redhat.com/training/certifications/ BTW LQ has a forum where you can ask questions about certification here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...tification-46/.

The way you SHOULD go is to install CentOS, and LEARN Linux, before you try to get a certification. Install it, configure services, troubleshoot, and learn how things work and why. Getting a certificate without having the knowledge behind it is pointless. If you know the subject, you will be able to get certified easily. This holds true for ANYTHING, not just Linux.

Remove RHEL 5.5 (obsolete release). Then install CentOS 5.9 as it is current, feature-compatible with RHEL and doesn't require an account to update it. See (wiki.)centos.org.

If you are going to do the Certification from RedHat, you'll need the latest RHEL/Centos 6.3.
They only examine the current latest major version ie currently 6.x.

I agree, but why CentOS, this is a free world.

Because if the goal is to prepare for a Red Hat certification, and you don't want to PAY FOR RED HAT, you install CentOS, which is 99.x% IDENTICAL, but FREE. Otherwise, you don't have access to online updates/patches/software, that's why.

Install whatever you like.
