We run RedHat Linux and Enterprise Linux on a number of systems at work. When the current Perl/SAP project ends I'm hoping to persuade work to send me on one a RedHat training course so I'm better able to run these systems.
From what I can find out, the course is targetted at RedHat Enterprise Linux, not Fedora Core, or the older RedHat Linuxen. I don't know much else, I have to dig into the matter further.
I took their self-assesment test for the RHCT course, and I did okay on most of the stuff, but not so good on vi/vim, floppies or cron. I'm hoping to do the RHCT course, then the security course, and finally the RHCE course, which is over 12 days of training and two exams. I doubt the firms budget will stretch to doing it
Rather ironic! I agree, it can't be that hard to to manage a curses, or even command line front end. A nice GUI would be nice, but I suppose you can't tell what system someone has, and there are differences, but you would expect to be able to actually run the software on a RedHat system...
Anyhow, I've prodded my manager, and in the mean time, I'm going to study my "Running Linux" book by Walsh et al.. I think I'm capable of doing the RedHat Certified Technician course, but I won't know until I try it. If
Another useful reference guide I've found (albiet slightly dated nowadays what with the 2.6 kernel being current) is rute [icon.co.za] which initially got me going on a lot of command line stuff I was unfamiliar with, and has occasionally filled in some info that I was unaware of since then.
