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 a redHat AS 3 box, when I run up2date --register and go the verification screen, the up2date program can't verify my username and password in redHat website and I get the problem registering username message box and the ssl handshake failure error message in the terminal window.
I'm able to connect to the internet from the Linux box,
I tried downloading and updating the up2date RPMs' and ssl certificates only to get the same results.
Can any one help me on this?
I tried the duke site and the CDs' but couldn't find a release for RHL AS3, I found for RHEL4 and tried it with ' yum update ' again to get a
'bash: yum: command not found' error.
I think it's bretty obviuose that I'm totaly new to Linux,
Actually what I realy need is some administration skills to be able to manage Oracle products on RHL servers
im running fc4 and it uses yum as a package manager also so im assuming that its the same. i got out of using the up2date thing and i installed yumex all that is is a gui installer instead of the terminal. i find it alot easier to use if you would like to try it
in an open terminal type in #yum install-yumex hopefully that will help u to using yum.
after downloading the file' yum-2.4.0-1.src.rpm ' then tried installing it using the rpm command, it gave a success message but when running '#yum install-yumex' I got the same error message 'bash command not found'
ok i just checked the command and its right when u open the terminal window type 'su' enter than type 'yum install-yumex' dont type the ' and if same as fedora core it should work since fedora core 1 is (from what i hear) in place of RED HAT 10. when i put the # in there that just meant to do it as root.
