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 tring to install dhcp from the packages directory in CentOS 6.3 DVD but it fails, stating that I need dependency and please check the log, it is already installed but still gives error.
The message clearly tells you it needs 12:4.1.1-31.P1.el6, and you have 12:4.1.1-31.0.1.P1.el6 installed. Using an RPM command isn't a good way to get things in...have you tried typing in "yum install <package name>", which will satisfy dependencies for you? Read the man page on the yum command.
I don't have internet connected to this server as it is dedicated to provide services to internal network only. As the message indicates, I have newer version installed than the version that is required so I don't understand why isn't it working then.
Again, it is looking for EXACTLY that version, and it's telling you that. If it's NOT that exact version, you're getting an error. It's even telling you that, so I'm not sure why that's hard to understand.
You have two options: connect it to the internet and run yum, or run the yum command and hope it can find everything from the DVD. AGAIN, type in "yum install <packagename>".
