Don't know about redhat free books... I assume you've looked through http://www.redhat.com ... More general info can eb found at the linux documentation project (http://www.tldp.org) ... Look at the "guides" for free online books about most everything... For specific things, look at the HOWTOs and man-pages.

Hussain,

If you are looking at using Redhat in a server capacity (for instance, as a web, mail, or ftp server), a great tool for learning to use Redhat Linux is <A HREF="http://www.webmin.com">Webmin</A>.  There is a companion book, <A HREF="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1886411921/104-6966514-0700724?v=glance">The Book of Webmin</A>, that does a great job of breaking down different services and commands, and free documentation on the website.

Since you may wish to eventually learn to use the command line tools directly, I would also recommend turning on the Webmin Logging feature.  This will create a log of each action you take, including the commands used to perform the action.

To install Webmin, from a terminal on a Redhat server as root, enter the following commands:

#wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin-1.150-1.noarch.rpm
#rpm -ihv webmin-1.150-1.noarch.rpm

and follow the prompts.

Hope this helps!
