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 yum to get updates for my redhat el4 however, I don't think the 2 repe I have contain all the packages offered to el4 because i am trying to install gcc through yum because its easier than rpm -ivh and all the dependency so when i Yum install gcc i dont' get anything beside: Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories
rpmforge 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00
dries 100% |=========================| 951 B 00:00
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Parsing package install arguments
No Match for argument: gcc
Nothing to do
the two repo i am using are "dries and rpmforge" which they work fine with most common packages like checkinstall, update yum etc works fine
Is there any other packages repo for redhat el4 beside the two i am using? Does redhat offer a repo that works work with yum?
I know on my other fc5 yum works fine installing gcc and resolving all the dependencies - so my guess is i need to add more repo for redhat rl4
Note: i tried to copy my Fedora repos to rl4 def didn't work .. it was just a try
Distribution: RHEL/CentOS/SL 5 i386 and x86_64 pata for IDE in use
Red Hat currently does not support yum with RHEL4, it will when RHEL5 comes out next year.
In the mean time use up2date to get your updates or switch to something like CentOS or Scientific Linux as both use yum.
