It may help if you joined a local library and found
one of the many Redhat/RHEL books that assume your a
complete newbie. The good thing about
RHEL/CentOS/Fedora is the availability of 
documentation/books/dvds in bookstores and libraries.
For example the Fedora 3 unleased book is of some use
to CentOS 4 since 87% of the apps in Fedora made it to
CentOS 4.

- You may also consider joining a LUG (Linux User
Group) near you.
- Try the "man yum" to check out info on yum.
- Do a --help on a command
- Do not run as root incase you damage your system
with a wrong command.
