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.

CentOS is a RHEL rebuild, so you don't need to do anything else as long as you get the centos release rpm that corresponds to the version of RHEL you are running. Take a look at th ewebsite for more info (your question would have been answered if you browsed the site first).
ok, but I dont want to change my distro, I am also running Red Hat enterprise (4) and my RHN subscription has NOT expired, so how di I get yum working on my OS?
this is the results when I try to install it:
warning: yum-2.3.4-62.el4.at.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 66534c2b
error: Failed dependencies:
/etc/yum.conf is needed by yum-2.3.4-62.el4.at.i386
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/libxml2.py is needed by yum-2.3.4-62.el4.at.i386
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/rpm is needed by yum-2.3.4-62.el4.at.i386
I had a bunch of python depandancies too but I got them all cleared up. but I cant figgure these ones out.
I have a /etc/yum.conf file (but I have a feeling it is incomplete and I have no idea how to configure that)
