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.

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 first bought RH9 back in Spetember, just before it was taken off the shelves... I loved it.. though it was for whatever reason, slow on my notebook... I upgraded to Fedora Core 1 Final in January and have been in love with it... My question is... I have this copy of RHEL WS 3.0 that I bought... (actually Professional Workstation, but it's the same exact disc's!!!) anyways... I know how anal red hat is with their enterprise updates... but I only want to run it on 2 boxes at my house...and for that I cannot justify spending that much more money right now.. just for the updates... so really.. what I'm asking is:
1.) Is there a way to save the updates after they are downloaded, as opposed to the way it just downloads them, installs, and deletes the rpm's??
2.) If so, how?? and how do I then transfer those to a second box... or could i just burn them all to a disc and install like that?
I don't know about ethical aspect of duplicating Red Hat's enterprise updates... and Fedora has rocked my little world so-to-speak... but since i paid the $100 for RHPW, i might as well use it right?
BTW, I have not yet activated my RHN subscription for this purpose... I want to be able to keep both systems up2date (all puns intended)...
Thanks in advance for the help! if it's possible..
no i mean i want 2 rhel ws boxes that i wanted to keep up to date... i'll still keep fedora on my notebook because it has better hw recognition... (tried installing it on my notebook first...wasn't a pretty site)
