IMHO the best way to learn is to read the official documentation, and 
get some hands on practice.

I have purchased both Michael Jang's RHCE book and Tammy Fox's RHEL5 
book (I'm preparing for RHCE), and while they are both very useful, the 
official documentation seems the best for really spelling things out.
