Which is the Suitable and free flavor to get practice in Linux Server


Hi,
As of now i am working in Windows environment as an Administrator But i would like to learn Linux. I just started my learning with the Redhat Linux. My learning is going on with the system level like user account creation and file management and so on..

But when i come to server level as you know we have to get the license. So kindly i request you to help me is there any way to get practice in configuring all the servers in free of cost.

centos.org is the way here. it's 99% compatible with Redhat (it basically IS Redhat with different logos), so everything you learn on it can be lifted and shifted to rhel without any major changes.

What acid_kewpie said. Go ahead with a CentOS 6.x virtual machine and a one of the Linux starter's pdf.

Regards.

And that's a Centos from me! Congratulations, you've got four Centos', you're through to the next round!

Play Bonny!



Sorry, I couldn't resist.
