RHCE by michael Jang, Osborne press

    I've got the fourth edition (a good sign),
which covers RHEL 3. Current  shipping
version is RHEL 4, and 5 is due out soon.
The tests (and classes) lag the release
by a few months.
    I recommend getting the outline from
the RH training site and using RH docs
(available online) as well as various
other sources (which we can nail down
in the next few weeks).
