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.

Go to start->server setting->services (i think; i know its called services). You will get a list of things there. Its safe to disable about 1/2 of them for sure (just make sure that you find out what they do before hand). Also note that you want to disable those things on runlevel 5 AND 3.
WEll I mean I personally thought that Red hat was good.....For a While
But i soon realized that its a piece of krap(my opion)cause it just keeps crashing, but i suppose what Pc i got(1Ghz 30GB 256mb Geforce 2). Anyways If you are REally really willing to learn about linux I would strongly suggest that you get slackware or Debian cause thry make you learn faster.
Anyways I bet you don't even know how to install packages on your redhat. Its hard to find inforamtion about how to do things with Redhat cause they are just too professional.
all the inforamtion for doing stuff on other distros are on the inter net why not change it quickly so that you can learn quicker??
(don't have to listen if you don't want to!)
And there's too many flavors of Debian at LinuxIso.org, I don't know what to get! You've got a potential learner here so help me out! I REALLY want to use Linux, I won't get scared by it as long as it's not just a command line...
well not really
look there is nothing between those two, well atleast i don't think so so.....
Just go and surf the internet for more info I mean, There are so many install guides that you can get for Slackware so i don't see whats the problem if you can read ENGLISH
I'm afriad you would need to use command lines quite alot if you want to use linux, cause using linux means that you do alot of stuff involving typping commands, but i mean agian there are so many guides that you can learn from. Surely you can do it as it tells you to, and even if you have any confusion just create a thread like now and hopefully somebody like guru will help you.
good luck with your Linux
I know. I really don't mind using the command line... but, I would like some basics such as KDE. I already know some commands such as su ./configure make make install and the such, so I can get get myself around the very basics... I wanna learn though, so yeah, I'll check out slackware. Thanks.
