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.

Is there any software that will keep linux (I am using RH9) up to date through the command line interface. This doesn't have to be automatic. I just want a program that will allow me to run the program and check all my packages I have installed and then tell me if there are any updates available. I have to run this from the shell because I have no window manager installed nor do I want one installed.
ok tried up2date but i get this error when typing up2date at the bash prompt:
You are attempting to run "up2date" which requires administrative
privileges, but more information is needed in order to do so.
Password for root:
There was an SSL error: [('SSL routines', 'SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE', 'certificate verify failed')]
A common cause of this error is the system time being incorrect. Verify that the time on this system is correct.
if up2date is a redhat thing, then will it still be supported since redhat has changed the "desktop" version to fedora and gone to the redhat enterprise edition. I mean will that up2date be supported without some sort of paid subscription?
go to rhn.redhat.com and download 2 rpms. Just click around and you will find it. These fikses that problem. There is also a howto that you can follow.
Note that you have to be registered to be able to download the updates.
