I find the best place to get support for Redhat and other linux flavours is from mailing lists rather than forums.

For Redhat specific mailing lists:
http://www.redhat.com/support/forums/

or for a good all distro forum:
http://www.linuxiso.org/forums/

Find a book, and read it. :D Unlike those for other operating systems, books on Linux are almost all good -- any published by O'Reilly are exceptionally good. :D I'm not sure if RH still put their books on the CDs, but the Red Hat "Getting Started" guide is very good. I think they would still include it, but it will be available online. If you installed the documentation, spend some time browsing the HOWTOs. (If you didn't, do it :D)


There are two very good resources online: "The Linux Cookbook", and "RUTE". Rute is also available as a book (which has a CD with the HTML version as well). You could also try some of the links I gave in FAQ80 here. ;-)For any problems with hardware, "make_and_model_of_HW linux" to google will almost always get you the answer, or confirmation that it is a problem.

Ask here.
