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.

Distribution: CentOS, RHEL, Solaris 10, AIX, HP-UX
your starting point should be the installation of RHEL. Workstation configuration incl. Xorg,authentication, printing and network should be trained. Follow up in installing a server, connect workstations to the server, learn about smtp/pop3/ldap/http/ssh/rsh/telnet/ypserv/samba/tcp-ip and how to troubleshoot this.
My RHCE certification was quite difficult, because it was a practice test on a test lab and not this multiple joice questionary like M$ has. I administer RHEL machine since 1998 and there where a view points i had to train myself in, because i never used them (especially ypserv). The most common problem is not the kind of problems to solve, most people had problems with the provided time, which is somewhat short. Redhat expects that you have a solid stand on most products and on shell usage.
I used Micheal Jang RHCE study guide, which was very helpful.
Did you take the pre-requisite tests in Redhat site? This will help you to find out how your actual knowledge is.
