    so,after a couple of days
    now i have installed fedora 13 on my laptop cause of wi fi problem on rhel
    but i want to ask , will fedora work like rhce
    i think it is not working like rhce so how can i handle it,commands are not running properly
    even iam not able to open /root folder and i can't open yumrepos.d file.
    now, what can i do?????

    ->what is the actual difference between rhel and fedora,iam asking because i want to learn rhel

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    RHEL is an enterprise-class OS so the packages it runs are well tested, but not bleading edge. Fedora is basically the testbed for RHEL so it will be more up-to-date, but unstable - not suitable for enterprise applications that have to run 24x7. It is suitable for desktop purposes, however. Fedora is running the latest kernels and applications, so it supports a lot more current hardware such as WiFi, bluetooth, webcams, etc.

    So, if you want the latest and greatest of desktop environment and broadest hardware support, then run latest Fedora versions. If you want a stable server for business applications that has to be highly reliable and secure, then run RHEL or one of it's clones such as CentOS or Scientific Linux.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    That's RHEL, you mean?
    yes, it will, coz' it's the that's RedHat supported community version, following which new features are added in every RedHat release.

    Why do you think it's not working like RHEL?
    /root and yumrepos.d files are preety much there in both.

    Rubberman has already cleared it up, you must Google up these things first though.

    You would surely not buy RHEL only to get your Wifi work, instead cut the crap and go for Fedora for better hardware support, both are almost 100% same.

    Have you paid a visit to RedHat's official website, if not then please do it.
