One book you might consider purchasing is "Fedora 9 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux Bible" (Wiley)) (Paperback). I do not have that edition, which just came out, but I have several previous editions. I am certain there are many other great books about RHEL. CentOS is a binary clone (with few exceptions) of RHEL. In addition to the great data on the CentOS WIki, you can download some of the manuals from our upstream (RH) on the CentOS web site. Possibly more manuals are available on the RH web site that you can download. As another poster pointed out, if you subscribe to and read this mailing list, you WILL learn. Another good method is "learn by destroying".
