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.

is what's displayed in var/log/up2date
the screen goes blue after I type in the following:
(choose option 7, package skip list, then C to clear the list)
(press enter to save)
rpm --import /usr/share/rhn/RPM-GPG-KEY
The screen is blue and a URL (which I can't recall) which i believe ends in foo and displays several times and finally succumbs to a timeout message.
This is my first installation of RHE 3 AS. I have installed the 64 bit eS version and up2date works from that on the same subnet.
1st, LQ membership is spread around the world, so it may take 24 or even 48 hours to get a good answer. Be patient. There is at least 1 member that answers posts starting w/ "URGENT" (something you're not guilty of) w/ a link to Google.
2nd, if you think you're not getting an answer because you chose the wrong forum, then report your own post asking that it be moved. This is prescribed way of getting it in the right place.
Hope someone who knows about up2date sees this & gives you an answer.
