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.

i use an another way to work with chrooted bind.
i edit /var/named/etc/named.conf, also copy some lines (about rndc key) to that file from /etc/named.conf. then put zone files in /var/named/chroot/ directory.
u may want to put some lines in your BIND howto about "rndc connection failed" error. because i generally got that error when i was trying to configure bind on redhat/fedora.
it is very good!
may i suggest u to add a section how to block msn messenger or other messengers trou squid ?
i use squidguard too. when i tried to compile it from source, i got some errors about db. i installed squidguard dag rpms.
The FTP server howto seems good, but what about considering users who are behind a NAT, such as myself.
I use ICS with a WinXP host (Direcway -- my isp -- only works on XP)
Direcway is then behind a NAT
I'd want to be able to host an FTP server from my desktop running on a LAN in my room.
That's a somewhat complicated problem that's hard to find answers for, it'd be nice to see a guide that has a how-to. I still haven't found the solution, actually.
Not trying to hijack this thread, so don't reply with answers to this. If anyone wants to, email or message me. Just trying to give more ideas. I'm willing to try your FTP server portion if that were able to be added, though.
I would suggest adding notes about alternative servers to the ones you describe. For example, Postfix and qmail seem to offer higher security than sendmail. Courier is also considered a worthy alternative. djbdns may offer the same advantage over BIND. For Postfix and qmail, at least part of the security advantage is their modularity. For djbdns, at least part of the security advantage is that it operates in a chroot sandbox.
You don't need to offer the same level of installation/configuration details of alternative packages as you do for sendmail, BIND, or whatever else you find alternatives to. For qmail and djbdns, pointers to http://www.lifewithqmail.org/ and http://www.lifewithdjbdns.com/ may suffice (they probably make better pointers than their the programs' home pages).
Perhaps others can offer you additional alternatives to note and pointers to include. There is no particular reason to make a list of alternatives exhaustive. A selective list is probably more helpful than an exhaustive one. But I would recommend that you include enough so that the reader sees that there are alternatives out there and that some of them may offer real and important advantages.
