Quite agree with this. I've been running RedHat since 5.2 and the
differences in the later versions are amazing! The ease of setup now is way,
way better. It's worth either the download time (if you have a good link) or
even better the small cost of buying the boxed set, with manual and such.
You should also certainly buy a Linux sysadmin guide or something to help
you out. After workiing everything out for myself for a year or so, I bought
a duide and suddenly everything started to actually make sense!
