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.

I have recently downloaded linux 6.5 enterprise server ISO from redhat(https://rhn.redhat.com/rhn/software/...pportedISOs.do). I need to find packages to install vsftpd but don't know which ISO will contain it, so I have downloaded two other ISO called "RHEL Server Supplementary (v. 6 for 32-bit x86)" and "RHEL Server Supplementary beta(v. 6 for 32-bit x86)" will these ISOs contain the RPM packages or I need to get it from somewhere else.
if your iso is around 4.7GB then then it should contain vsftpd packages
1) mount the dvd
2) run find command else you can run locate command try to find out with package name (i.e. vaftpd*)
3) once you found the package go to the directory which contained the packages
4) run this command $rpm -ivh vsftpd*
Hi All thanks for the reply, Mine is just a beta version downloaded from redhat downloads for learning purpose. So I need ftp package. I thought it will be in the supplementary cd, I searched in that cd but not able to find any packages in that.
