Stevie asked:

"Could you, or anyone else for that matter recommend what should be install using text-mode & what should be installed using graphical mode
~ also how many install for your RHCT did you have to do ?"

The GUI vs text choice is a personal one. In general, most people I've asked say that text configuration is quicker. I find that I go to the GUI for areas that my knowledge is more sketchy. For example, I use text mode for:

User administration (adduser, pwd, usermod, etc). I can pull up previous command syntax and quickly add a number of users, configure group membership, etc. The GUI's OK, but this is such basic stuff that it should be unnecessary.

Adding NFS exports.

Configuring Apache. The /etc/httpd/config/httpd.config file is pretty easy to familiarize yourself with and I find the GUI to be absolute poison, especially if you're using virtual servers.

vsftpd - I think text is the only way to configure it

checking services and getting them to start upon reboot with chkconfig

I use the GUI for things like:

SAMBA - still not comfortable with changing the config file manually (it's so big).

CUPS - I find the GUI MUCH MUCH easier and quicker for adding printers.

Runtime Kernel values (instead of fighting my way through the /proc filesystem)

I'm not sure of your question about the number of installs for RHCT. If you mean how many times did I take the RHCE test - 3. The first time I was unprepared and arrogant. The second time I didn't budget my time wisely and failed by 4%. I did a lot of speed drill practice the third time and passed with 100% on the debug and 82% on the RHCT and 79% on the RHCE objectives in the afternoon. If you're asking about the content of the test then I can't (won't) comment, as I take the NDA seriously. (I'm not trying to be an idiot, I just don't want to jeporadize my cert)

If you're wondering how many /which services you'll have to install for the RHCT specifically, then take a look at the Redhat study guide. It lists the services broken out by RHCT tasks and RHCE tasks. For example, Apache is listed as an RHCE skill and not RHCT. You would not be expected to install Apache if you were writing the RHCT exam.

I hope this helps, and good luck.

Derek

I got my linux+. Job-wise, it dosn't do much good, but surely dosn't hurt. I also got my SCSA from Sun, and that is what turns heads. Linux+ is definately a good starting point, but don't stop there! And good luck to ya.

Hi,
I did my RHCE in April 2007. It has helped me a lot in understanding the basics of linux. But I don't want to go for any other unix certification as they are not so challenging like RHCE.

A+, Network+, Linux+ and studying for my CCNA now. After that I would like to study for my RHCT/RHCE; but am saving up to take the classes that Red Hat offerers. My company would probably pay for my SCSA (since most of my servers are Sun servers).

Lpic-1

I passed LPIC-1 last August (2007). There is a lot to be said for getting Red Hat training, as well. I am glad I got certified, but more for the working to get it. It plunged me into a learning environment I might not have discovered just doing day-to-day work.
