Anyway. for all the nix fans. Should i do the Redhat training courses, or teach myself ?
Courses are quite expensive, but i am thinking speed v. cost.
I've been moaning about MS too myself for a long time, and the quicker i can become self sufficent with linux, to the point that i don't need MS, the better.
If you need to know exactly what you need right now, go for the training courses. If you have the time to burn and patience to read documentation, teaching yourself will probably give you a more through understanding of the system, at the expenses of an ocasional need to reinstall while you are learning that the turbolinux packages are not compatible with redhat :)
If you're learning by yourself, install it on your own, non-production box. And don't worry: the version conflict happened to me several years ago, but my actual box has never needed to be reinstalled; as a matter of fact, I only put the disks of my old box on this.
One of the things that slowed me down were some hardware issues. I spent two weeks trying to figure out why my machine was crashing. Finally realized it was a nic card that was not compatable.
Which ever way you go ...
It is worth it!
Good Luck and keep us posted
now trying to figure out how to open opera for linux, which is an RPM, as i already paid for the licence for it, mmm !
