RCHT or Linux plus


Hello everybody,
My first post...I'm very new to linux and want to get certify in either Linux plus or RHCT? I don't know which one I should study for or what books or CD's to help me with this, since I don't know too much of either. Please advice me which direction to go? Thanks in advance.

Hi,

And welcome to LQ!

My humble opinion is that the Linux+ doesn't really have much
of a recognition in the industry. As for the experience: use
Linux, and try to help others resolving their issues. That's
the fastest way to learn - gritting your teeth and working
through real problems.


Cheers,
Tink

A few suggestions for the first steps:

Step 1:
When you partition your hard drive, create a separate /home directory.

Step 2:
break it good, break it often. Reinstall, reformat your / (root), but save your /home...that way you can recover easily from your mistakes.

Step 3:
learn about the terminal or command line, Two first commands:
man "Blah" that will help you research "Blah" or whatever commands you are interested in.

apropos "blah" will search the man pages for keywords.

Step 4:
Google: "The Linux documentation project" some good reading in there

Step 6:
Continue to ask questions here

that should get you off to a good start

Asking "Linux+ or RHCT" is like asking "A+ or MCSA"

They are different. If you are at a beginning or mid level (or even advanced in come cases) Linux user go for your Linux+

RHCT/RHCE is geared towards SysAdmins with experience...although some dedicated individuals have passed it with just knowing enought Red Hat

It depends what you want...my advice...start with a low end certification and work your way up.

There is also http://www.lpi.org/

good luck!
