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.

enterprise tech support
No JFS support, No ReiserFS option in the installer, poor admin tools, adding software post-install from CD-ROMs 2, 3, and 4 does not work!
* No JFS support?! There are some JFS tools lying around if you dig for them, but JFS is broken. I've heard that JFS will be supported in future releases due to the number of complaints from RH customers.
* No ReiserFS support during installation?! I don't want ext3, it's inferior to reiser. And you don't have to agree with that to agree that it should at least be an option.
* You can use an anaconda kickstart floppy during installation. However, you will have to do the partition step manually if you use LVM (This may be true for other partitioning schemes as well, but I can only speak for LVM). Frustrating.
* I complete an installation for 10 machines. Then I realize I forgot to add a few packages. No problem -- I have the install media, so I'll just pop that in and install the extra stuff. Everything is fine until I am prompted to insert CD2, CD3, or CD4: if that happens the installer crashes with no error message. Every time. On all 10 machines. With the same media I used without incident during the install. Wow. This is *enterprise* software?
* 27 students are training on these machines. Several students *per day* ask, "where did my gnome panel go?" and "why are all the icons on my desktop gone?". Yes, gnome, where *did* they go? No idea.

Ethernet adapter not detected and no drivers
I installed the product and thought of registering it over my lan so
tried to configure my LAN and detect the driver where for surprise I got an error message saying the device is not present
for my New IBM Thinkpad R51 2888 CA4
I my self tried to install the driver and then I gave my vendor the work of installing a driver for the machine
we all worked day and night in searching drivers for the machine and got nothing but empty hands
even Redhat support is not having any help for us !
may be I should Have gone for fedora which appearently had the drivers and helpful and safe on your pocket tooo
