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.

yum is and WAS already installed in RHEL 5
there is no need to REINSTALL IT
from this " baseurl=file:///var/ftp/pub/Server "
are you MAKING your own software reop ?
if so WHY ?
have you paid $$$ for the Red Hat software UPDATES and support
you NEED to BUY the updates from Red Hat
also DO NOT use the rpm command all by it's self -- it will NOT install any missing dependencies
this is why yum is used in RHEL 5 ( up2date in the older RHEL4 )
OR install CentOS 5.3
if you DID install a DIFFERENT yum " over/on top of " the original default installed yum
It might be so messed up , to the point that it might be easer to reinstall the OS that try to figure out what you did.
Ok, the media error is probably referring to the install disk. If it is not in the drive when you try to use yum it will error out. You can change this behavior by altering the /etc/yum.repos.d/media.repo (the name will be the only one with media in it). Open the file and change "enabled=1" to "enabled=0". If there is no "enabled=" line in the file then add "enabled=0".
