Actually, this might be the site you are looking for. There are lots of real life problems looking for solutions right here at LQ.

If you do a web search for "linux tutorials," you will find a number of links, but I've not used any of them to be competent to judge. The first one I clicked wanted a java-enabled browser.

Anki is good for flashcards learning; it offers a version for the major platforms, including Android. I have used if for several learning projects. There are a number of flashcard sets already created for Linux.

http://tille.garrels.be/training/tldp/. Machtelt Garrels's Intro to Linux was the most useful reference for me when I was first learning Linux.

There's a tremendous amount of information at The Linux Documentation Project.

Hope this helps.

Probably the best way to get real life linux problems and find out their solutions is to use linux every day. You cannot learn linux simply by reading the documents and once you hit the problem you probably don't remember how to fix it nor where did you read about it. So purely theoretical Linux expert is not so good expert at all.

I believe that if you are new to linux (why limit yourself to Red Hat only) then there are much more basic things to learn that high-end server management. Also if you are newcomer then nobody will let you anywhere close to mission critical Linux setup so you must prove yourself as an expert somewhere first. Also in big sites where there might come those special server maintenance issues, there are usually small team (or army) of admins available and if all goes well you might get to jin the team and learn from them.

Anyway, by becoming proficient in Linux, start using it and start doing some thing more advanced that installing couple of RPM-s from the net. Red Hat is really not good distro to learn Linux BTW - too many specific tools which leaves you with the impression of knowledge and power. Once those tools stop working or are not available you would be dead in the mud but true linux expert wouldn't care about those tools in the first place.

RHEL is fine to learn from, especially if you maximise your time on the cmd line.
I would note that its by far the biggest supplier in the commercial Linux market.
