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 am using redhat 7.3 and I am trying to install openssl-devel-0.9.6b-18.i386.rpm but I get the following error message when I try to install:
error: failed dependencies:
openssl = 0.9.6b-18 is needed by openssl-devel-0.9.6b-18
The thing that confuses me most is that when I check my machine it says that openssl-0.9.6m-2.src.rpm is already installed. I notice that this is a different version than the one openssl-devel requires, but the build date of
"openssl-0.9.6m-2.src.rpm" is Tue Jun 1 14:01:14 2004 and is actually newer than the build date of "openssl-0.9.6b-35.7.i386.rpm" which is 2003/Sep/24 21:24:27 .
I hessitate to install the older version, "openssl-0.9.6b-35.7.i386.rpm" on top of my existing newer version, "openssl-0.9.6m-2.src.rpm".
Is this anything to be worried about? I'm just worried that if I install the older version on top of the newer version it'll overwrite some files and something will stop working on my machine, because I don't know what other dependencies are depending on my existing version on my machine at the moment.
