ok, here goes:


this is the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Step By Step Guide; it's a  
reasonably good start for a newbie.  i'd recommend reading all of it  
rather than trying to pick out bits and pieces.

if you'd like to print it out for offline reading, a PDF version is  
available here:


once you're done with those, consider perusing the System  
Administration Guide and/or the Reference Guide, or read those books  
i recommended earlier.  more general documentation is available at  
the Linux documentation Project:


but at a bare minimum, read the Step By Step Guide.  then come back  
with questions. :)


If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an
