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 would like to get gvim working on Linux Redhat (remote server which I ssh into using putty).
I have vim installed on the server yet can't seem to find a package for gvim or how to get it installed.
Also any other tips on the installation(s) required to get gvim to open locally (I know I need xming to run locally and some sort of Xserver on the server to run, how to install on redhat? a good one?)
The package you need is vim-gtk.
To run a X application like gvim over SSH you don't need a XServer on the server, you need it on the client. On the server side you just have to enable X-forwarding in the configuration file.
I have searched but can't seem to find this package: ?
[01:34:50][root@host:/home]# yum search vim-gtk
Setting up repositories
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Excluding Packages in global exclude list
No Matches found
Perhaps I need to update the repositories locations or something - this should be a common package?
