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: Fedora (workstations), CentOS (servers), Arch, Mint, Ubuntu, and a few more.
Unlike its descendant CentOS, RHEL has a subscription-based support model. Which means you need to have a RHN subscription to use to update from official repos. So you either have to configure your system to use RHN or switch to CentOS repos. Try "sudo yum repolist" to see active repos for you.
If you don't want to pay for RHN, your choices would be to switch to an alternative distro or change your system to use CentOS (or other RHEL compatible repos).
Edit: CentOS is practically RHEL sans the trademarks. Red Hat may not provide packaged updates for non-subscribed RHEL installs, but remember the reason CentOS, Scientific Linux, etc. are able to exist is Red Hat being nice and providing sources.
As you mentioned i have no repo configured, can you plese tell me how to configure it? second I already googled and tried the methods to use some other repo, including one method of making "Foo" file with nexcraft repo and rest of methods but non of them worked :S so finally, posted to experts here.
Can you please give me some more idea about Sno#2.
