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.

Ok, I have been put in charge of the dns server here at work, and its running redhat 7.
its the dns server, so< i need to know, what happens when i upgrade this? and what should i upgrade it too? its on kernel 2.4.20... should this be upgraded too? this is one of those things where they havent touched it in forever, and it just sits there and runs.
also, if i use yum or up2date, does it change any of the config files? or does everything stay the same?
i also want to do a backup? what are the best tools for this? thanks
if you can point me out to any links or info, i havent used something so old, and I dont want to screw anything up. thanks
yum is installed, i dunno if the sys admin installed it before me, or not? but, i can type in yum, and it works. i dunno where its getting the repo or what not, but if you tell me what the file name is, i will search and tell you whats in
The Fedora Legacy project maintains Yum repos (with occasional security updates) for old RedHat. See here for RedHat 7 instructions. Additionally, the 3rd-party repositories FreshRPMS and ATrpms also have their own Yum for old RedHat.
