Well, it's a good resource for beginners and intermediat users. I think that newbies should start from RHL 9 or FC 1 /FC 2. It has everything to build a strong basics so that you can decide further that what are the new points to learn in FC 5 or RHEL 4. But first you need a background and it is one of the best solutions for that prupose. Overall I am well satisfied with this product.
