The first thing would be to spell out your words and write clearly. Text-speak isn't good for anyone to try to decipher.

And if you want to learn Linux, the best place to start would be to LOAD Linux, and start using it. Same as you did for Windows or Mac that you're probably using now. There is no way we can tell you what is 'best' for you, since you don't tell us what kind of hardware you're using, but if you're just starting out, load the latest Fedora.

So, you asked for advice on a good distro to load for a new user, and we gave it to you...then you ignore it, and load RHEL? Why ask if you're going to load whatever you want to?

And unless you are going to PAY FOR RHEL, you should not be using it. You will NOT get updates/patches/security fixes, and will not be able to load software from online repositories. All you've done is make things MUCH harder on yourself. Not to mention the fact that RHEL is meant for SERVERS...not consumer hardware. Support for sound/bluetooth/etc., is lacking, because such hardware is NOT FOUND ON SERVERS. This has been said on this site many, MANY times.

....which proves that point. If you loaded Fedora or Mint, chances are it would be working. And you need to open a new thread for a new question, don't tack them onto an existing question that has nothing to do with the original topic.

And again, if you looked on this site, you'd find this same question answered many times. You probably need to run usb_modeswitch, then get network manager to set up your connection. Again, if you loaded Fedora or Mint, things would probably be working.

Mint is really good for a beginner, you can download a live version and try it out without installing.
If you insist on using and learning red hat you need to download and install centos it is a free replacement for red hat that you can update upgrade or do what you wish without having to buy it.
