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 am running Apt4RPM and Synaptic - which is nice.
I notice that under RH9 there are only 2 repositories listed and they appear to offer the same files as my install cds (I think). How do I add extra repositories? I've had a wander through postings on LQ and tried a few Google searches and I can only find RH8 listings.
Can anyone help?
And should one of you point me to a Google search that I should have thought of and works, I'll hang my head in shame and mumble "thanks".
this is standard in /etc/apt/sources.list (on debian)
deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 r0 _Woody_ - Official i386 Binary-1 (20020718)]/ unstable contrib main non-US/contrib non-US/main
it's the entry to apt from the woody cdrom, maybe you can figure out how to use the RedHat cdrom's with apt
Unfortunately, for reasons I am currently investigating/attempting to solve at the moment, packages must be rebuilt for each version of each distro. As RH9 is very new, there won't be many packages for it yet.
