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 did search everywhere and could not find the information I needed. I want to know :
What is the system requirement (HD, RAM, CPU ) for
Linux Red Hat vs 5
Linux Red Hat vs 6
HD RAM CPU
Linux Red Hat vs 7
HD RAM CPU
In this thread, you seem to be asking a very similar question (ok, you've dropped one of the obsolete versions of Red Hat, but the question is along very similar lines); normally you would go to the Red Hat site for this kind of information, but, presumably, with these versions being so long obsolete, Red Hat no longer consider this information to be even of historical interest.
In neither of the threads, so far, have you indicated why you have decided that you need an old version of Red Hat, rather than a modern, small, distro, which would be a more easy-to-recommend approach.
thanks, I will keep centos and fedora in mine. I was able to order and old book with cd rom of version 7.3 red hat . That is the highest version I could use with this machine who needs a floopy disk to install because bios will not load from cdrom. Why red hat ,many ask. well for the easy instructions to follow available in online doc. also that it did work in this machine before with not to much problem on hardware comptability. I finally found the requirement from books in amazone.com web site. I will wait for the book and cd rom in the mail and I will let you know updates on it. It should take about 1 month.
