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 installed RHEL5 on my machine.Now i need to install apt-get on RHEL5.By default yum is available for RHEL5.but iam not register user of RHEL5 thats why its not working.please give me some solution.its urgent.
Even if it is theoretically possible, trying to use the Debian package management system on a RedHat (or any rpm-based distro) is going to be more trouble than it is worth.
It wouldn't be problematic if he installed the version of apt which manages rpms instead of debian packages (like PCLinuxOS). The only stumbling block would be finding apt repos for RHEL and related distros because most repos seem to be based on YUM (although in the past there were many apt repos for redhat/fedora).
I think the apt versions that were written for Fedora (post FC5?) used that same repos as yum. If it is speed that you are looking for (multiple connections at once) the smart package manager does this and more. It is available for most distros.
