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.

Do you host your site from your home using your residential cable or dsl. If my ISP finds out that I'm running a business website from my home, will they cut me off, or will they just jack up my price?
teh thing to read is your isp's fair use policy and terms of sercvice,
eg my isp (tiscali) says in their fair use policy that if you use excessive bandwidth in peak hours that they will email you asking you to cut down and if you persist they will throttle your bandwith in paek hours so that you dont slow everyone elce down.
then again my ISP offers busness broadband at the same speed with a fixed IP and i belive a higher upload speed (though im not sure)
and nothing in teh terms of service prohibits using the conection for home busness purposes
Most will cut you off depending on TOS. I worked for TimeWarner and they didn't care so much if you were just running a website but when those started running commericial sites to make money, they would cut them off if caught. Just a thought.. you're probably better off hosting elsewhere to get better benefits if your going to run a commercial business with a website.
