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 hope everyone considers this the correct forum I was in two minds as to where to post it....
I wish to setup a secure web server that will have very little change (if any) once setup. It will basically be serving content from another box.
To ensure that there is as little as possible that can go wrong I thought about running a single boot cd distro running the web server. Now obviously the http.conf, ssl key & certificate as well as any authentication will need to be altered (and preferable burnt onto the CD).
Best case senario for me I guess would be to setup a machine and then "image" the install to CD. If anything went wrong a simple reboot would set everything back to the original state. Any attempt to hack the machine could be quite humorous as you would be unable to edit files, perminatley anyway ;p.
You can take a distribution from a hard-disk and with a little modifacation make it so that it can be made into a cd-image to be burnt. Eagle-linux has very good directions for this sort of thing. With a little bit of imagination, you should be able to modify directions found http://eaglelinux.w32.net/v2_2CDHowto.pdf so that it's exactly what you want.
