I'd start by getting Fedora 12 installed, and then work on doing some hosted services (SAMBA, NFS, FTP/SFTP) just the sort of things your company would do. Play around with VNC, that kind of thing. Learn to start and stop services, extend file systems, tweak permissions.

Definitely play with stuff like firewalls and apache, since most companies love those.

Hard to say otherwise, depends on what they want you to do

If you are serious about using RHEL in a business context, either get hold of RHEL (but you have to pay) or get the equiv Centos: a free version of RHEL.
Latest is 5.4.
I wouldn't use Fedora for this.
BTW, they dropped the 'Core' part of the name some versions back (v7 ?)

Here's the RHEL Admin howto http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...ion/index.html
