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.

--- Centos-Media.repo ---
# This repo is used to mount the default locations for a CDROM / DVD on
# CentOS-5. You can use this repo and yum to install items directly off the
# DVD ISO that we release.
# To use this repo, put in your DVD and use it with the other repos too:
# yum --enablerepo=c5-media [command]
# or for ONLY the media repo, do this:
# yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=c5-media [command]
name=CentOS-5 - Media
# This file uses a new mirrorlist system developed by Lance Davis for CentOS.
# The mirror system uses the connecting IP address of the client and the
# update status of each mirror to pick mirrors that are updated to and
# geographically close to the client. You should use this for CentOS updates
# unless you are manually picking other mirrors.
# If the mirrorlist= does not work for you, as a fall back you can try the
# remarked out baseurl= line instead.
name=CentOS-5 - Base
#packages used/produced in the build but not released
name=CentOS-5 - Addons
#additional packages that may be useful
name=CentOS-5 - Extras
#additional packages that extend functionality of existing packages
name=CentOS-5 - Plus
If you use a proxy at port 3128 (3128 is typically the port for a proxy server), you need to configure yum to use it. If you fortinet is just a firewall, it should have port 80 opened, not 3128, as the yum servers are approached through the regular http port (80).
