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.

It was registered last time I logged on to the server a few weeks ago, and it still shows up when i log into the RHN website. So I have to pay for extended support now to get any updates it might have been missing since the last time I updated it?
To register as "redhat" user-customer is free! But in order to have your system up to date you must pay a yearly subscription. Otherwise you should install CentOS if you want enterprise solutions or Fedora if you want for simple use!
That's the thing, I'm all paid up with redhat, all my other servers are fine, but this one isn't showing up, and its my only RHEL3 box too. Must be something with it going EOL, although I'm not sure how to get those updates. I'd imagine they're still available somehow.
Yes, you can check with RH. RHEL3 hit its End Of Life on 31st October this year. They are considering some basic extended support for the customers who can not for some reason upgrade to RHEL5 or RHEL6 which is newer version. But that is going to be very basic support and not all customers may get it. You should check with RH support or sales.
