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.

actually i'm new on linux...
i try to configure RHEL5. everytime i install new program i will have a problem with dependencies. for example i install using rpm, during installation dependencies error will arise n need another rpm.after i get needed rpm i install it and this rpm also will need another rpm and so on.is it have a problem with my distro installation
Best way is to configure yum or apt to install your software. This will solve all your dependency issues.
Any software you need to install will have dependencies and it will look for the packages it depends on.
The package managers will help you in solving this issue by installing the dependencies with the package or software you want to install.
I havent used apt on red hat much. It is a debian tool but it is available as rpm on dag wieers.
If you search the site you will find the rpm for apt for your version.
But as billymayday suggested, you better first find out if you paid subscription from Red Hat. If you have that, you can use update command.
actually this company use linux server and i'm sure they have paid support from redhat.but i'm just trainee and my job is to install another pc with this linux server and make an experimental myself. so i not register this distro
If you feel that company must have paid for the subscription to Red Hat, just find it out if you can use it?
If yes, then you have your problem solved. If they do not want you to use it then you can download the rpm from dag wieers.
I would say give some attention to the advice given by lazlow.
Corporates may allow you to use the license from RH. I have no idea if RH license is similar to MS with per user license or if once paid for subscription any number of systems can be installed with the subscription.
If later is the case there is no reason why they will not allow you to use it.
