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.

I have tried other usernames, they don't work either.
However, I purchased the "basic" license through Redhat, so I would like to eventually get up2date to work. Unless, that is, that the alternatives to up2date do the same thing for free. Please let me know.
[root@localhost root]# up2date

SSL.Error: [('SSL routines', 'SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE', 'certificate verify
Something tells me that the SSL failure is the root of the problem. Any ideas or suggestions?????
Had the same problem with the "SSL routines', 'SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE', 'certificate verify
The problem was a too large time difference with the server.
Use NTP-server to adjust time and sync with "clock.redhat.com"
