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 have a buddy that has a RedHat 7.3 server handling some specialized Govt apps in a research/simulation environment along with several RH 7.3 workstations. He asked me if I knew of any apps or scripts that would automatically push out patches, updates, etc, much the same way that up2date handles it, or SUS on the Windows side of the house. I suggesting upgrading to RH 8 or 9; but, that is not in the cards. Anyone familiar with something like that, maybe a cron job that talks to the server? Thanks to anyone who can help me out.
I thought about and have used apt-get on the the Fedora build (just to play with it), although I am personally still a Deb fan. Will it actually work with 7.3? I'll forward your suggestions to him. With the apt-get, he would have to build a custom repository on a box somewhere to hold any application specific patches as well as OS patches. Going out to public apt sites is probably going to be a frowned upon, but, if he downloaded the packages and then put them on his trusted network....I'll have to see if he is up to the challange. Thanks for the help, I did forward a link to this forum so he could use it as a resource, as I have. Thanks again.
