If you have a Mac, then I'd suggest installing Virtualbox, and load Fedora on it. Get it configured, working, and learn the basics. Then, you can download/install CentOS, and practice more on an OS that's more like Red Hat Enterprise.

Do NOT just learn enough to get a 'certification'. Learn the basics, and move up from there.

If you want to study a RHEL type system in order to take the current RH exam, skip Fedora and go straight for Centos. Centos is a free rebuild of RHEL; Fedora is only 'similar' ... in fact its quite a bit different.

PS: RHEL manuals here http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...on_index.html; you'll probably want to start with the Deployment Guide.

Agreed, but I suggested Fedora to the OP, simply because they have zero Linux experience now, and Fedora would be more likely to support 'consumer' drivers for stuff on their laptop. Once they got their feet under them, they could go for CentOS.

Here is the centos mirror list - http://www.centos.org/modules/tinyco...ndex.php?id=30

Choose the mirror that you think would be best and download the iso file.

Did you try going to the CentOS website? Looking it up on Google? Anything??? There is only so much people can help you with, and then you have to start taking some initiative on your own.

The link provided goes to the CentOS website. At the top is a "Downloads" link...click it. It will then have a link for the mirrors that carry CentOS. Pick one from the list that's close to you. Save the file to your computer.

Hi

You have downloaded the 32 bit version of centos is that what your machine is.
You will need to know if you machine is 32bit or 64bit so you can down load the correct version

Dvd1 will give you a basic system that works if you include dvd2 that will give you a full install

Here is a Readme
