How do I get help with Exercises from the Fedora and Red Hat book?

By experimenting? It seems you're trying to get a degree or something...
If you're stuck on something, you're most welcome here, but of course, we'll not do your homework as you'll understand

I'd set up a redundant box/PC and get into the thing by emulating the excercises...

You will get flamed if you ask us to do all your work for you.
But if you show the work you've done so far, and ask specific questions, like "I finished steps 1-7, but step 8 is giving me this error message (copy & paste error message); can anyone spot the problem here?" you will find people willing to help.

The best option in my opinion is to study with a qualified teacher/expert. http://redhat.com/training has a list of courses and options, or perhaps there is something available through your local university/community college.

If you want to learn on your own without a teacher, then you have your work cut out for you. My suggestion is to set up a network of spare computers and/or virtual machines and patiently work through the exercises in the book.

Thank you for your input. I am going to school and working though the book and exercises. As I'm sure you know, learning all of the commands initially can be a bit of a challenge. I find it quite facinating learning Linux.

It's nice to know there is a resource like this out there.

Thanks again!

Any question is welcome here (and we can handle a broad spectrum of them believe me) but we do draw the line on the homework stuff...

Okay, so, as soon as a redundant PC is ready, let your experimental fury loose on the thing. At best (and I do mean that) you'll ruin something, that's where the learning begins. As a pop-song goes over here
