Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

After having about seven weeks now under my very large and bulky LDAP belt, I am now able to compile and install both BDB and openLDAP Server side on Solaris and Red Hat. (Previously having never...
This is my first blog entry! Going to introduce myself and explain a little bit about what I am going to blog about.
As of right now I am a junior sys admin at a medium sized datacenter. I primarily work with RHEL, so the bulk of my blogs will be in reference to that operating system. I have been here for about six months and have learned a lot.
About one month ago the only other Linux SA left and that forced me to learn fast. Even though there are several other...
