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.

Please help me in creating graphical one.
You say you are preparing for RHCSA / RHCE, if you use M. Jang's latest Study Guide, have a look at pages 437 & 438. Those explain how to create a repository from the RHEL 6 DVD. Pages leading up to it do all the explaining. Once that is set up you can use yum/rpm to install packages that are on the DVD.
If you don't have that book I would suggest borrowing/buying it (or something similar).
Both CentOS and Scientific Linux can be used instead of RHEL, although there are (minor) differences.
well..thnx for ur suggestions. i'm actually preparing for RHCSA & RHCE certification, hence needed red hat.
Are the config files of centos & red hat the same?
Yes...CentOS is 99.9% IDENTICAL to RHEL, but free, and community supported. The differences are VERY minimal. Without paying for RHEL, you won't be able to install via online repositories, or know how to configure them. Those are good things if you want to get a certification.

Spell out your words. And the reason it doesn't show anything, is because you haven't installed them yet.
